Deficiency of current methods in assaying endochitinase activity.

Abstract

Since chitin is degraded by a combination of both endo- and exochitinases, it is likely that both enzymes will be present in a crude extract. Currently used substrates for detecting endochitinase activity suffer from the fact that they could easily be digested by the contaminating exochitinase, thus giving either a false-positive or an inaccurate reading of… (More)
