Neuraminidase activity in middle ear effusions.

Abstract

Analyses of Streptococcus pneumoniae culture filtrates and middle ear effusions (MEE) containing S pneumoniae for various hydrolytic enzymes have demonstrated substantial levels of neuraminidase activity when measured employing a sensitive fluorometric assay. S pneumoniae neuraminidase exhibits optimum activity near neutral pH (6.0 to 6.5), and catalyzes… (More)
