Rutaceae extracts enzymatic activities were studied in order to find out their possible relation with the antimicrobial activity that they possess as well as the improvement of other productive aspects. Several enzymatic activities were detected (Acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, esterase, lipase, leucine arylamidase, trypsine, valine arylamidase, cystine arylamidase, α-fhymotrypsine, naphtol-AS-BI-phosphohydrolase, α-fucosidase, α and β galactosidase, β-glucuronidase, α and β glucosidase, α-mannosidase and N-acetyl-β-glucosaminidase) and special attention is paid to those enzymes that have direct effect on either the bacterial cell structure or the bacterial metabolism. © 2007 Asian Network for Scientific Information.
