Abstract: The structure determination of polysaccharides using specific enzyme(s) as a tool has been of great importance. Such an enzyme, (1→3)--D-glucanase was induced in Aureobasidium pullulans by yeast -glucan as a potent inducer. The formation of enzyme was, however, repressed by glucose. The purified enzyme has molecular weight 230 kDa, optimum pH 5.5 and optimum temperature 60°C. The enzyme hydrolyzes laminarin and yeast -glucan. The km value obtained for laminarin was 0.17%. The analysis of the hydrolyzed product demonstrates that the enzyme acts on (1,3) linkages from the non-reducing end(s).
