Specific activity:
~ 50 U/mg (40oC, pH 7.0 on debranched arabinan).

Unit definition:.
One Unit of arabinananase activity is defined as the amount of enzyme required to release one µmole of arabinose reducing-sugar equivalents per minute from debranched arabinan (5 mg/mL) in potassium phosphate buffer (100 mM), pH 7.0 at 40oC.

endo- / exo-hydrolysis of (1,5)-α-arabinofuranosidic linkages in (1,5)-arabinans. Processive mode of action with predominant release of arabinotriose from linear arabinan.

Applications in carbohydrate and biofuels industry.

The water-soluble non-starch polysaccharides from bananas display immunomodulatory properties on cultured macrophages.
