Yeast Lytic Enzyme, Arthrobacter luteus


Chemical Properties

Lyophilized powder
Fully miscible.


Yeast Lytic Enzyme is used to hydrolyzes linear glucose polymers with beta-1,3-linkages, used for enzymatic digestion of yeast glycan coats and for spheroplast formation, used to digest the cell wall of active yeast cells.


20 units/mg. One unit decreases abosrbance at 800nm by 30% after 2 hour assay at 25 C using brewer's yeast as a substrate.
