  • THE series of iodometric methods1 for assaying penicillinase reported here permits enzyme activity to be measured easily over wide ranges of pH and temperature, with higher speed, accuracy or sensitivity than were previously attainable2. Although designed for the penicillinase of B. cereus NRRL-569, it appears likely that they may be equally suitable in principle for penicillinase from other sources. ‘Unit rate of penicillin destruction’ is used here to mean a destruction-rate of 1 µmol./hr… CONTINUE READING
