Hydrolytic enzymes of Euglena gracilis: characterization and activity as a function of culture age and carbon deprivation

The Journal of protozoology

Abstract

Optimal assay conditions are described for 8 hydrolases of Euglena gracilis var. bacillaris, SM-L1 (streptomycin-bleached) strain, 7 of which have an acid pH-optimum. Acid-phosphatase, beta-galactosidase, beta-glucosidase, b-fucosidase, cathepsin D, RNase, DNase, and an esterase are active in cell homogenates. Amylase has very low activity, and beta-glucuronidase, arylsulfatase, beta, N-acetyl-glucosaminidase, alpha-fucosidase, and alpha- and beta-mannosidase are inactive.
