  • Summary The existence of proteolytic enzymes has been shown in 4 strains of Phymatotrichum omnivorum of varying stages of pathologic and physiologic vigor. One other strain failed to exhibit proteinase production in laboratory culture. Various properties of the enzymes from 2 strains have been studied. The enzymes were optimally active at pH 4.5 to 5.0, and required a divalent metal ion. This requirement could be met by Co++, Zn++, Ni++, Mg++, Mn++ or Ca++ ions; Fe+++ ions were inhibitory… CONTINUE READING
