Kallikrein was isolated from bovine pancreatic tissue by a sequential procedure of anion-exchange, hydrophobic interaction and gel filtration chromatographies. A monospecific polyclonal antiserum to the pure enzyme was raised in rabbits and was used to set up a specific radioimmunoassay for bovine tissue kallikrein.
Numerous biochemical properties (e.g. Mr, carbohydrate content, pI) were determined for kallikrein isolated from rat submandibular glands by a simple, rapid purification procedure. The kinetic behaviour of the enzyme towards various inhibitors and synthetic substrates was investigated. The effects of different salts and detergents on the esterolytic(More)
A prokallikrein was isolated from bovine pancreas by a multi-step procedure involving gel filtration, hydrophobic interaction and anion-exchange chromatographies. The purification was initially monitored by measurement of the kinin-releasing activity of the activated zymogen. Later, when the pure prokallikrein had been isolated, a specific radioimmunoassay(More)
Chlorophenols comprise a major class of environmental contaminants. They are extensively used as insecticides, fungicides, mold inhibitors, antiseptics and disinfectants. We found some of these compounds to be strong inhibitors of zeta-crystallin. This oxidoreductase enzyme was isolated from camel lens and its enzymatic activity was inhibited by the(More)
Camel lens zeta-crystallin/NADPH:quinone oxidoreductase activity was inhibited by chloranilic acid (2,5-dichloro-3,6-dihydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone) with NADPH as an electron donor and 9,10-phenanthrenequinone (PQ) as an electron acceptor in a time-independent but concentration dependent manner. The IC50 of chloranilic acid was 1 microM. The inhibition was(More)
