IUBMB Comments
Favours pectin, the methyl ester, over pectate, the anion (which is the preferred substrate of EC, pectate lyase). Demethylation progressively slows its action; it can nevertheless cleave on either side of a demethylated residue if the residue at the other end of the scissile bond is methylated.
