An extracellular endo-1,4-beta-D-glucanase from Fusarium oxysporum was purified by affinity chromatography and gel filtration. The enzyme purified in this way was homogeneous when judged by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and isoelectric focusing-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The protein corresponded to a molecular mass and pI value of 41.7 kDa and 6.4, respectively. It was optimally active at pH 4.5 and at 55 degrees C. The enzyme hydrolyzed carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and unsubstituted and substituted cello-oligosaccharides but was inactive on Avicel, filter paper, xylan, cellobiose, p-nitrophenyl-beta-D-glucoside, and p-nitrophenyl-beta-D-xyloside. However, the enzyme effected only a small change in viscosity of CMC per unit increase of reducing sugar. When cellotriose, cellotetraose, and cellopentaose were used as substrates, the enzyme released mainly cellobiose. Use of 4-methylumbelliferyl cello-oligosaccharides and the determination of bond cleavage frequency revealed that the enzyme preferentially hydrolyzed the glycosidic bond adjacent to 4-methylumbelliferone. Thus, the purified enzyme appeared to be a less randomly acting endoglucanase. (C) 1995 Academic Press, Inc. (EN)
