Abstract

Novozym 234, a commercially available enzyme, has been used successfully to prepare protoplasts from yeast-like cells, mycelium and chlamydospores of the polymorphic fungus . Use of the density gradient material Percoll after wall digestion resulted in preparations of high purity that were metabolically active. Size distributions of protoplasts were determined easily using Coulter analysis.
