Purification and partial characterization of the high and low molecular weight form (S- and F-form) of invertase secreted by Aspergillus nidulans.

Two forms of secreted invertase have been purified from Aspergillus nidulans by ion-exchange and gel-filtration chromatography. S-invertase gave a single, broad, glycoprotein band on PAGE and SDS-PAGE corresponding in size to 185 and 78 kDa, respectively, compared with 94 and 110 kDa for F-invertase. The carbohydrate of S-invertase contained mainly mannose… (More)
