Biochem/physiol Actions

Pectolyase catalyzes the eliminative cleavage of a-(1- 4)-Dgalacturonan methyl ester to give oligosaccharides with 4-deoxy-6-O-methyl-a-D-galact-4-enuronosyl groups at their non-reducing ends. It contain two types of pectinase, endopolygalacturonase, endo-pectin lyase and a maceration stimulating factora.

Other Notes

Reported to contain two types of pectinase, endopolygalacturonase (EC3.2.1.15), endopectin lyase (EC4.2.2.10) and a maceration stimulating factor.
