Measurement of penicillin acylase and cephalosporin acylase in fermentation broths

The p-dimethylamino-benzaldehyde method of Bomstein and Evans, the ninhydrin method of Marrelli and the new p-dimethyl-amino-benzaldehyde method of Kornfeld were evaluated for analysis of penicillin-V acylase and cephalosporin-V acylase in fermentation broths. The ninhydrin method was the method of choice for cephalosporin-V acylase, whereas the Kornfeld… CONTINUE READING
