Abstract

Summary: and isolated walls of this organism autolysed rapidly when incubated in buffer at pH 7.0 with the release of free-reducing groups but no N-terminal amino acids. The predominant autolytic enzyme was an endo-β--acetylglucosaminidase, and an endo-β--acetylmuramidase was also present. The autolytic enzymes could be solubilized by extraction of the organisms with 5 M-LiC1 and would then subsequently bind to and rapidly lyse walls of and, more slowly, formamide-extracted walls of and walls of Lysis of walls by these extracted enzymes could not be demonstrated.
