An endo-(1?3)-ß-d-glucanase has been isolated from malted barley and purified 92-fold. The enzyme preparation appeared to be physically homogeneous and had a molecular weight of about 12,800 daltons. The enzyme is highly specific for (1?3)-ß-d-glucosidic linkages, and has an endo action on laminaran. The effect of certain group-specific reagents on the enzyme has been examined. © 1974.
