Specific activity:
~ 10 U/mg (40oC, pH 4.0 on CM-linear 1,5-α-L-arabinan).

Unit definition:
One Unit of arabinanase activity is defined as the amount of enzyme required to release one µmole of arabinose reducing-sugar equivalents per minute from CM-linear 1,5-α-L-arabinan (10 mg/mL) in sodium acetate buffer (100 mM), pH 4.0 at 40oC.

endo-hydrolysis of (1,5)-α-arabinofuranose linkages in (1,5)-α-arabinans. Acts more slowly on the (1,5)-α-linked arabinan backbone in branched arabinans than on linear arabinans.
