ABSTRACT: Bacterial invasion of the intestinal mucosa is a significant event in pathogenicity of Salmonella typhimurium which is one of the leading causes of childhood morbidity and mortality. Due to the penetrative nature of S. typhimurium, a search for a mucinase with specific alpha N-acetyl galactosaminidase was undertaken. Herein we report the identification of an alpha-N-acetyl galactosaminidase enzyme in the culture filtrate of S. typhimurium and partial purification of the enzyme from a wild strain of S. typhimurium and its plasmid cured counterpart.
