Homogeneous alginate lyase with rare specificity exhibiting maximum activity at pH 5.0 and temperature range 40–55°C that catalyzed cleavage of 1→4 glycoside bonds between α-L-guluronic acid residues was isolated from liver-pancreas of the marine gastropod mollusk Lambis sp. The alginate lyase was classified as a poly-1→4-α-L-guluronate lyase (EC 4.2.2.11).
