The nature and distribution of carbohydrates in Agave vera cruz have been reported on by Srinivasan & Bhatia (1953, 1954a). The isolation and properties of an enzyme present in the stem of this plant, capable of building glucofructosans from sucrose, are described in this paper. So far, the only other plant sources shown to contain such an enzyme are Jerusalem artichoke (Edelman & Bacon, 1950, 1951; Dedonder, 1952) and Polianthes tuberosa (Bhatia & Srinivasan, 1954), the latter yet another glucofructosan-bearing material (Srinivasan 8:: Bhatia, 1954b).
