High activity extracellular glucose (xylose) isomerase from a Chainia species

Abstract

A sclerotia-forming actinomycete of the genus Chainia secreted high levels of glucose (xylose) isomerase when grown in submerged culture on a wheat bran - yeast extract medium. Maximum activity (4 units/ml) was obtained after 3–4 days when the cell bound activity was 0.19 units/ml. The two enzymes differed significantly in pH optima (extracellular, 9.5… (More)
