<p align="justify">Chitosanases which catalyze the hydrolytic degradation of chitosan are to be regarded as important for the extensive carbon and nitrogen recycle which occurs in nature. Chitosanases occur widely in soil microorgan isms and in some plants, fulfilling a possible defense role in the 1atteE Chitosanases may find important industrial application in the utilization of the enormous chitosan and chitin substrates, available from sea-food-processing units, for the generation of the size-speciJic chitosan oligomers required particularly in pharmaceutical industries. Chitosanases having very diverse characteristics are known and may be of value in basic studies related to their biological role and the structural elucidation of natural chitosan.</p>
