Abstract

Summary: Two phage-bound polysaccharide hydrolases specific for type 8 polysaccharides were isolated. Each enzyme was specific for the polysaccharide produced by the host strain. One enzyme hydrolysed a pyruvylated and acetylated polymer, while the other only acted on the substrate lacking these substituents. Both enzymes were galactosidases releasing tetrasaccharides from their substrates which were only hydrolysed to a limited extent.
