In vitro degradation of chitosan by a commercial enzyme preparation: effect of molecular weight and degree of deacetylation.


A commercially available almond emulsin beta-glucosidase preparation has been reported to have chitobiose activity, and can hydrolyze chitin substrates due to a chitinase present in the enzyme preparation. This beta-glucosidase preparation was used to investigate hydrolytic activity on five chitosan samples with different molecular weight and degree of… (More)
