Chapter 05 -- Global Phospholipase Enzyme Market Analysis 2014 - 2018 & Forecast 2019 - 2029 by Product Type Based on product type, the phospholipase enzyme market is segmented into five types- phospholipase A1, phospholipase A2, phospholipase B, phospholipase C, and phospholipase D.
The term "phospholipase B" was first described by Contardi and Ercoli (1) in 1933 as lecithase B, which attacked an acyl--ester bond of lysolecithin and produced one mole each of fatty acid and glycerophosphocholine (GPC).
Therefore their phospholipase B had two activities, i.e.
(1858) Studies on the hydrolysis of lecithin by a Penicillium notatum phospholipase B preparation.
(1960) The physicochemical requirements for the activation of Penicillium notatum phospholipase B on unimolecular films of lecithin.
Differential expression of Candida albicans secreted aspartyl proteinase and phospholipase B genes in humans correlates with active oral and vaginal infections.
Phospholipase B shares both the properties of PL[A.sub.1] and PL[A.sub.2].
Phospholipases (e.g., phospholipase B) and proteases (e.g., secreted aspartyl proteases [SAPs]) are two of the best-characterized.
We then compared adhesion ability, biofilm production, and secretion of SAP and phospholipase B of the outbreak isolates and our clinical strains.
Although one article described phospholipase B and protease activity in a few strains of C.
Since all isolates expressed some degree of adhesion (except for hand isolates 313 and 385), SAP, and phospholipase B activity, these phenotypes may be necessary but not sufficient prerequisites for infection.
