Abstract

-Glucosidase activity in is strictly intracellular. Cell-free extracts contain at least two -glucosidases. One of the enzymes is constitutive and it hydrolyses -nitrophenyl---glucoside (PNPG) but not cellobiose. A second enzyme is induced about fourfold by growth on Avicel, and about sevenfold by growth on cellobiose; it hydrolyses both PNPG and cellobiose.
