Hi everybody:

About 5 ng purified GUS is required to produced 1 nmole MU (methyle
Umbelliferone)/minute from methyle umbelliferyl glucuronide (MUG).  Does
anybody know (or has determined) how much PURIFIED endochitinase
(Chitinase) is required to produce 1 nmole MU/minute from any
methylumbelliferyl-substrate, specific for chitinases?  Thanks a lot.
