Abstract

Extracellular nuclease activity in was enhanced about fourfold by 1% (w/v) NaCl, KCl, CsCl or LiCl. The pH and concentration of Ca for optimum activity varied with the NaCl concentration; with an increased NaCl concentration, a higher Ca concentration and a lower pH were required. , but not , varied with the concentration of NaCl. The addition of 3% (w/v) NaCl to growing cultures of increased nuclease production fivefold.
