A polygalacturonase was isolated from the culture medium of Sclerotinia borealis, a psychrophilic fungus that grows on lawn and wheat seedling under the snow in winter and induces the snow mold disease. Pectic acid was a better substrate of this enzyme than pectin when the activity was determined by measuring the reducing sugar produced. However, when the activity was measured by viscosity change, the viscosity of pectin decreased more rapidly than that of pectic acid. The results of viscosity… CONTINUE READING
