What is the source of the statement? Is this really an exact quotation?

comment What is the expected effect of pH on the activity of a fungal pectinase?
Could you also give more details of methodology and controls - pectin can be hydrolysed non-enzymatically at low and high pH.

comment Enzyme Assay, absorbance change to concentration change
This looks correct to me, although it odd not to relate the activity to the amount of enzyme that was added to the reaction - the Vmax that you have calculated is a property of the exact assay conditions used.
