Abstract : A cellulase and a laminaranase have been purified from a Streptomyces lytic enzyme complex. Lipase and protease were separated from glucanases. A combination of the purified glucanases produced 'protoplasts' from Pythium sp. PRL 2142. Lipase was shown to act as an adjuvant in this process. (Author)
