Glycosidase activities of mycoplasmas.

The activities of alpha- and beta-glucosidase, beta-galactosidase and beta-N acetylglucosaminidase were assessed at acidic pH by fluorimetry using the appropriate 4-methylumbelliferyl substrate in four Mycoplasma species (M. pneumoniae, M. gallisepticum, M. hominis and M. capricolum) and in Acholeplasma laidlawii. The glycosidase activities were in a low… CONTINUE READING
