Yeast lytic activity was purified from the culture supernatant of Oerskovia xanthineolytica grown on minimal medium with insoluble yeast glucan as the carbon source. The lytic activity was found to consist of two synergistic enzyme activities which copurified on carboxymethyl cellulose and Sephadex G-150, but were resolved on Bio-Gel P-150. The first component was a beta-1,3-glucanase with a molecular weight of 55,000. The K(m) for yeast glucan was 0.4 mg/ml; that for laminarin was 5.9 mg/ml… CONTINUE READING
