Enzyme-accelerated hydrolysis of polyglycolic acid.

Abstract

In a preliminary study of the enzyme-polymer interactions, the role of 15 enzymes in the in vitro hydrolysis of polyglycolic acid has been investigated. Carboxypeptidase A, alpha-chymotrypsin, clostridiopeptidase A and ficin increase the rate of hydrolysis of this synthetic polymer, illustrating the ability of enzymes to influence polymer degradation.
