Increase in beta-N-Acetylglucosaminidase Activity during Germination of Cotton Seeds.


A marked increase in beta-acetylglucosaminidase (2-acetamido-2-deoxy-beta-d-glucoside acetamidodeoxyglucohydrolase, EC activity was observed in the germinating cotyledon of cotton seeds. The enzyme was isolated from cotton seedlings and purified to study its physiological function in the germination of cotton seeds. The purification procedure… (More)
