  • a Phospholipase activity was determined as the diameter of the zone of clearance on egg yolk plates with and without cellobiose added. Symbols: ++, average diameter, >1.0 cm; +, average diameter, 0.5 to 1.0 cm; +/−, average diameter, <0.5 cm; −, no zone of clearance. Each result represents at least two independent replicates.
