Ozeki Corporation Westase yeast cell lytic enzymes

Wednesday, 29 January, 2014 | Supplied by: United Bioresearch Products Pty Ltd


Westase, manufactured by Ozeki Corporation in Japan, is prepared from the liquid culture supernatant of Streptomyces rochei DB-34. The product has complex lytic activity in yeast cells mainly consisting of -1,6 glucanase and -1,3 glucanase activity.

The enzyme is suitable for ascosporogenous yeasts such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is also available for fission yeasts such as Schizosaccharomyces pombe which generally cannot be protoplasted just with a zymolyase treatment. The product also allows for efficient protoplasty in rarely protoplasted yeast such as Basidiosporogenous, Ustilago maydis, Phaffia rhodozyma and Cryptococcus albidus.
