Chitin from shrimp shells is suitable for analysis of chitinase. It is a polysaccharide composed of N-acetyl-D-glucomasine that can also be used for the manufacture of glucosamine and chitosan.
Requires purification prior to use as a substrate for chitinase.
Chitin, a β(1,4) polymer chain of N-acetyl-D glucosamine, is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize chitinase(s) and chitin deacetylase(s). Chitin may be used as a viscosity/thickening agent or binder.
