Abstract

SUMMARY: Sixty-seven cultures of plant pathogenic bacteria, of the genera and and 56 cultures of non-pathogenic bacteria were tested for production of pectic enzymes in culture. -Pectinglycosidase was produced by 22 strains of pathogenic bacteria and by 15 non-pathogens. Pectin methyl esterase was produced by a few pathogens: the soft-rot erwinias, and one of three strains of
