Abstract

The first isolation of plant protoplast using the enzyme β-1,3-glucanase was successfully achieved using sterile Acacia mangium as plant source. Aniline blue reaction and antibodies highly specific to β-1,3-glucans confirmed the induction of β-1,3-glucans in the cell wall by wounding during the mincing treatment which would enhance the accessibility of lytic enzymes. Plant regeneration is expected using this technique.
