The extraction of cellulase from commercial enzyme preparation by ammonium sulfate precipitation and its enzymatic characterization were studied. The results were as follows: the conditions of precipitation was 60% saturation of ammonium sulfate, the recovery rate of carboxymethylcellulase (CMCase) and Filter Paper enzyme Activity (FPA) were 73.8 and 71.4%, respectively. The enzyme has optimal temperature of 55°C, optimal pH of 4.8, the ions of Co2+, Mn2+ in the buffer lowered the activity of CMCase, but the Cu2+ in low concentration activated the CMCase. The ions of Co2+, Mn2+ and Al3+ in the buffer lowered the activity of FPA, but the Cu2+and K+ in low concentration activated the FPA; Km and Vmax of the enzyme were 2.22×10-3g/mL and 1.11×104 U/h using Lineweaver-Burk graphic method, respectively. © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2013.
