    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

Some 100 pectolytic bacteria belonging to different genera and species, were obtained by isolation from vegetables and by screening of culture collections. The crude enzyme preparations of 19 of these strains were typed by mutual comparison. Differences in the composition of five commercial fungal 'pectinase' preparations were also studied. Purified endo pectate lyase of Arthrobacter which was studied in detail, appeared to attack pectate far 'less randomly', than endo pectate lyases of Bacillus polymyxa or Pseudomonas. The best substrates for pectate lyases were not pectates but 21 to 44% esterified pectins. A new method for the determination of the number average degree of polymerization of pectic substances was introduced. The literature on pectolytic enzymes was reviewed.
