Pectolyase from Aspergillus japonicus

plant cell culture tested, lyophilized powder

Synonym: PEL1




Used in plant protoplast preparation to digest cell wall prior to organelle isolation.

Pectolyase P5936 (Pel1) is a natural mixed pectolyase produced by the fungus Aspergillus japonicus used to digest components (endopolygalacturonate and pectin) of plant cell walls. Treatment of cell walls with pectolyase can be used to destablilize the cell walls for organelle isolation or to modify the elasticity of the cell walls.

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.
