Source: Bovine Testes
Testicular hyaluronidase is a glycoprotein containing 5% mannose and 2.7% glucosamine. Optimum pH range is 4.5-6.0. The enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of endo-N-acetylhexosaminic bonds of hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate A and C (but not B), primarily to tetrasaccharide residues.
Unit Definition: One unit is based on the change in absorbency (turbidity) at 540nm of an internal standard assayed concurrently with each lot. Internal standard replaces USP/NF reference no longer available.
