    Abstract

    A new spectrophotometric method has been developed for the quantitative determination of l-arabinose, using the NAD-dependent ß-d-galactose dehydrogenase from Pseudomonas fluorescens. This method has been applied to the determination of l-arabinose produced after degradation of l-arabino-d-xylan by a-l-arabinofuranosidase from Aspergillus fumigatus, and provides the basis of a sensitive, accurate, and specific method for assay of this enzyme which is technically straightforward to perform. © 1983.
