Affinity chromatography of trypsin and related enzymes. I. Preparation and characteristics of an affinity adsorbent containing tryptic peptides from protamine as ligands

Journal of Biochemistry
K Kasai, S Ishii


An absorbent for the affinity chromatography of trypsin [EC] (AP Sepharose) was prepared. The ligand was a mixture of oligopeptides (mainly di- and tripeptides) containing L-arginine as carboxyl termini, and was obtained from a tryptic digest of protamine. Trypsin was absorbed at relatively low pH (7-4), but was not absorbed at the optimum pH of catalysis (8.2). This was clearly explained on the basis of the pH dependence of the interaction of trypsin with its products. Inactivated trypsin, trypsinogen, and chymotrypsin were not absorbed. The absorption of active trypsin was interferred with by either benzamidine or urea. From these observations, it is evident that AP Sepharose is an affinity adsorbent. AP Sepharose was useful for purification of commercial bovine trypsin. A preliminary application for the purification of Streptomyces griseus trypsin was also successful.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
