Two endo-beta-1,4-glucanase components (YEG1 and YEG2) of the endogenous cellulase from the Japanese subterranean termite, Reticulitermes speratus, were purified to homogeneity using gel filtration and hydroxylapatite chromatography, and their enzymatic properties were investigated. Using sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), YEG1 and YEG2 had M(r) of 42 kDa and 41 kDa, respectively. Both components had an optimal pH of 6.0, an optimal temperature of 50 degrees… CONTINUE READING
