Chitinases were isolated from the grains of wheat, barley and maize, and compared with those obtained from Serratia marcescens, Streptomyces griseus and Pseudomonas stutzeri for antifungal activity and enzyme specificity. The six enzymes were tested for antifungal activity using an assay based upon inhibition of hyphal extension of the fungi Trichoderma reesei and Phycomyces blakesleeanus. Antifungal activity was observed with as little as 1 pg of each of the grain chitinases, whereas none of… CONTINUE READING
