High purity 2-Chloro-4-nitrophenyl-β-(1,3:1,4)-glucotetraoside for use in research, biochemical enzyme assays and in vitro diagnostic analysis. This is a colourimetric substrate for the measurement of lichenase or mixed linkage β-glucanase (endo-1,3:1,4-β-D-glucanase) activity. As this substrate can also be hydrolysed by exo-acting β-glucanase/β-glucosidase enzymes, it is recommended only for the assay of pure lichenase solutions. The data sheet for the analogous trisaccharide substrate, 2-Chloro-4-nitrophenyl-β-(1,3:1,4)-glucotrioside (cat. no. O-CNPBG3), describes suitable assay conditions.
Novel approaches to the automated assay of β-glucanase and lichenase activity.
