An enzyme which produces reducing substances from carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is present in homogenates of phytoparasitic and some myceliophagous nematodes but is absent from Panagrellus sp., Neodiplogaster sp. and from Trichinella spiralis. Temperature inactivation time, optimum ionic strength, pH optima, and substrate specificity were determined for Meloidogyne sp. and Ditylenchus myceliophagus preparations. Characteristics of cellulase differed in the two nematodes. Highest quantities of CMC-ase were present in preparations from root-knot and cyst nematode larvae.
