Abstract

A colorimetric procedure for the assay of cell macerating activity of fungal culture fluids was studied in relation to suitability of the substrates, enzyme concn. and incubation period. Monilia sp. and Aspergillus sp. were used for apple, potato, sugar beet, radish and carrot substrates. Monilia was found more potent and hence was selected. It was concluded that the enzyme activity was linear with respect to substrate, enzyme concn. and incubation period. It was also concluded that measurement of absorbance of the suspension fluid gives accurate results and either potato or apple could be used as substrate.
