Purification and Characterization of Pectinmethylesterase from Ficus awkeotsang Makino Achenes.

Abstract

Pectinmethylesterase from the pericarp of jelly fig (Ficus awkeotsang) achenes was extracted and purified to a specific activity of 289 micromole proton produced per minute per milligram protein. Pectinmethylesterase, a major protein with high specific activity in the crude extract, was monomeric with a molecular weight of 38,000. The enzyme preparation was… (More)
