A collagenolytic serine proteinase (CSP) was purified from red sea bream (Pagrus major) skeletal muscle to homogeneity by ammonium sulfate fractionation and chromatographies including DEAE-Sephacel, Phenyl Sepharose and Hydroxyapatite. The molecular mass of CSP was approximately 85 kDa as estimated by SDS-PAGE and gel filtration. Optimum temperature and pH(More)
Manganese-superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) from Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) hepatopancreas has been purified with high purification (781-fold) and recovery (10.8%). The molecular mass of the purified enzyme was estimated to be 26kDa by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions. In activity staining by native-PAGE, the Japanese flounder Mn-SOD gave(More)
Three pepsinogens (PG1, PG2, and PG3) were highly purified from the stomach of freshwater fish snakehead (Channa argus) by ammonium sulfate fractionation, anion exchange, and gel filtration. Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and native-PAGE analysis revealed that their molecular masses were 37, 38, and 36 kDa and their isoelectric points 4.8, 4.4, 4.0,(More)
Two chymotrypsins (chymotrypsins A and B) have been purified to homogeneity from the hepatopancreas of Japanese sea bass ( Lateolabrax japonicus ) by ammonium sulfate fractionation and chromatographies on DEAE-Sepharose and Phenyl-Sepharose. Two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) analysis revealed that the molecular masses of chymotrypsins A and B were(More)
Four Psychrobacter strains, JCM 18900, JCM 18901, JCM 18902, and JCM 18903, related to either Psychrobacter nivimaris or Psychrobacter cibarius, were isolated from frozen marine animals. The genome information of these four strains will be useful for studies of their physiology and adaptation properties to frozen conditions.
Mung bean trypsin inhibitor (MBTI) of the Bowman-Birk family was purified to homogeneity with a molecular mass of approximately 9 kDa on tricine-sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and 8887.25 Da as determined by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-quadrupole ion trap-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-QIT-TOF(More)
Settlement of larvae of Crassostrea gigas on shell chips (SC) prepared from shells of 11 different species of mollusks was investigated. Furthermore, the settlement inducing compound in the shell of C. gigas was extracted and subjected to various treatments to characterize the chemical cue. C. gigas larvae settled on SC of all species tested except on(More)
Three pepsinogens (PG1, PG2, PG3) were highly purified from the stomach of Japanese seabass (Lateolabrax japonicus) by ammonium sulfate fractionation, DEAE-Sephacel anion exchange column chromatography and Sephacryl S-200 gel-filtration. Two dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE) analysis revealed that the molecular masses of the three PGs(More)
“Burnt meat” is a term used to describe the white (pale, grainy, exudative) muscle of yellowtail or tuna. It (with lightness parameter, L* ≥ 55) was observed after 2 h storage in the suffocate in air (SA) 29°C group and after 4 h storage in the spinal cord destruction (SCD) 29°C group. In the SA 17°C group, burnt meat was also observed after 4 h storage. In(More)
An endogenous protease in fish muscle, cathepsin B, was partially purified and characterized from horse mackerel meat. On SDS-PAGE of the purified enzyme under reducing conditions, main protein bands were detected at 28 and 6 kDa and their respective N-terminal sequences showed high homology to heavy and light chains of cathepsin B from other species.
