Abstract : A mannanase from 'Cellulase 36', a commercial preparation of Aspergillus enzymes, has been purified and characterised. The purified enzyme contains traces of cellulase and laminarinase activities. The purification factor is 61 and the enzyme yield 11%. The molecular weight was determined. A solution of guaran is partly broken down to mannobiose and mannotriose by the purified enzyme. The pH optima and stability as well as temperature optimum and stability have been determined.
