Pectinase, Aspergillus niger


Chemical Properties

Soluble in water and practically insoluble in ethanol and ether.


Pectinase, Aspergillus niger is used in plant protoplast preparation to digest cell wall prior to organelle isolation. Pectinase helps facilitate the maceration of plant materials and extraction processes including organelle preparation. It is used in the enzyme preparation. Used mostly to reduce viscosity, to improve filtration to clarify products, to avoid particle sedimentation and to prevent pectin gel formation in the manufacture of fruit juice and wine.


Minimum 20 units per mg dry weight. One unit releases 1 micromole of D-galacturonic acid from polygalacturonic acid per minute at 37 C and pH 5.0
