Streptomyces griseus HUT 6037 inducibly produced two chitosanases when grown on chitosan. To elucidate the mechanism of degradation of chitinous compound by this strain, chitosanases I and II of S. griseus HUT 6037 were purified and characterized. The purified enzymes...

Chitosanases, enzymes that catalyze the endo-hydrolysis of glycolytic links in chitosan, are the subject of numerous studies as biotechnological tools to generate low molecular weight chitosan (LMWC) or chitosan oligosaccharides (CHOS) from native, high molecular weight chitosan. Glycoside hydrolases belonging...

Biocompatible hydrogels are very interesting for applications in, e.g., tissue engineering and for immobilization of cells, such as calcium-alginate gels where the calcium ions form specific interactions with the guluronic acid units. We here report on a new gelling system...
