|(1) One SKB unit is defined as the amount of enzyme needed to form 10 mg of reducing sugars from 1% soluble starch solution at pH 5.0 and 40C in 30 minutes.|
|(2) One FCC Lipase Unit (LU) is defined as that quantity of enzyme that will liberate the equivalent of one mol of acid (H+) per minute from the substrate, under the conditions of the assay. The assay is based on a five-minute hydrolysis of an olive oil substrate at pH 6.5 and 30C. The fatty acids released on hydrolysis of the glycerol esters are determined by the titration with sodium hydroxide.|
|(3) One carboxymethyl cellulose unit (CMCU) is that amount of enzyme which liberates one micromole of reducing sugar (expressed as glucose equivalents) in one minute under the conditions of the assay.|
|**The activity of bromelain is measured in the FCC PU; the assay of which is based on the hydrolysis of casein. This assay is based on a 60-minute proteolytic hydrolysis of a casein substrate at pH 6.0 and 40C. One PU (Papain Unit) is defined as that quantity of enzyme that liberates the equivalent of 1 g of tyrosine per hour under the conditions of the assay.|
