A Kagoshima University research team has discovered a new enzyme that is capable of breaking down a protein particle believed to be the transmitter of mad cow disease, university sources said Saturday.

The enzyme is more powerful and effective than one found last November by a research team led by the National Institute of Animal Health and Meiji Seika Kaisha Ltd., the sources said.
