Cellulolytic enzymes capable of efficiently degrading crystalline cellulose are a
complex mixture of endo- (endoglucanases) and exo-acting (cellobiohydrolases)
enzymes. One approach to separating these enzymes is affinity chromatography. A new
ligand, p-aminophenyl l-thio-β-D-cellobioside (APTC), is introduced for this purpose.
The property of APTC in affinity chromatography is demonstrated using Trichoderma...
Surimi is a seafood product which is used to manufacture restructured products
such as artificial crab and lobster. Surimi is produced from fish fillets by washing to
remove sarcoplasmic proteins and increase the concentration of myofibrillar proteins, and
mixing with cryoprotectants. A valuable attribute of surimi is its ability to...
