Abstract

Carboxylesterase in cell-free extracts of Streptomyces hygroscopicus was characterized with cyclohexylacetate and beta-penta-acetyl-D-glucose as as substrates. After concentrating the enzyme, activity with alpha/beta-methyl-4-O-propionyl-L-mycarosid as substrate was also observed. The influence of enzyme effectors was studied. Esterase activity was also found in the culture filtrate of. S. hygroscopicus.
