Reaction of equine alpha 2-macroglobulin (alpha 2M) with methylamine caused generation of 3.7 mol of thiol groups per mole of the protein, and the second-order rate constant of the generation was calculated to be 3.5 M-1 s-1. The inhibitory profile of caseinolytic activity of trypsin indicated that one molecule of equine alpha 2M inhibited two molecules of(More)
We examined the effects of elastase [EC] on lipogenesis, antilipolysis, and pyruvate dehydrogenase activity in rat epididymal adipose tissue in comparison with those of insulin and trypsin [EC]. The rate of conversion of [3-3H]-glucose into lipid in fat cells was stimulated by elastase, trypsin, and insulin. When fat pads were incubated(More)
Effect of an N-succinyl-L-trialanine p-nitroanilide-hydrolyzing protease (STA-protease) purified from Pronase on glucose metabolism was investigated by an intravenous injection into fasted mice. The maximum decrease in blood sugar level by STA-protease was observed 2 h after the injection of a dose of 5.0 mg/kg. The hypoglycemic activity was observed with(More)
