Chromatography of carboxylic proteinases on sorbents containing the 2,4-dinitrophenyl group. Role of ionic interactions

G I LavrenovaV M Stepanov


The chromatography of porcine pepsin on biospecific sorbents (Sepharose-4B-epsilon-DNP-aminocapronylhydrazide and Sepharose-4B-N-DNP-N'-acetylhexamethylenediamine) was studied. The sorbents in question differ from the previously used hydrophobic sorbent Sepharose-4B-DNP-hexamethylenediamine by the lack of strongly basic groups in the site of the ligand binding to the polymeric matrix. No qualitative differences in the pepsin chromatography on the three sorbents were observed. Presumably the decrease of the pepsin binding to the sorbents, containing the dinitrophenyl group, at pH values above the isoelectric point may be due to the effects of the salt on the binding site in the enzyme molecule rather than to the screening of the positive charges of the sorbent by chlorine ions. A commercial preparation of pepsin was purified 2-fold on the sorbent Sepharose-4B-epsilon-DNP-animocapronylhydrazide. The synthesis of sorbents is described.

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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
