Description

Product Description

Zymolyase-20T is an enzyme preparation from a submerged culture of Arthrobacter luteus which effectively lyses cell walls of viable yeast cells. This preparation is a lyophilized powder prepared by salting out from the culture fluid with ammonium sulfate and contains 20,000 units enzyme/g. The primary enzyme in this preparation responsible for lysis of viable yeast cells is ß-1,3-glucan laminaripentaohydrolase. It hydrolyzes glucose polymers at the ß-1,3-glucan linkages releasing laminaripentaose as the principal product.

Application Notes

Zymolyase 20T is used to lyse living yeast cell walls to produce protoplast or spheroplast of various strains of yeast cells. It may also be used for glucan hydrolysis. Zymolase-has a low solubility. Use as a suspension. If it is necessary to make a sterile enzyme solution of more than .5%, make a 2% enzyme stock solution by dissolving Zymolase -1T in a buffer solution (pH 7.5) which contains 5% glucose. To remove insoluble substances, filter through a sterile filter. Do not use Nitrocellulose filters. Dilute sterile enzyme suspension on to desired concentration.
