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)
Gelatinolytic enzymes were partially purified from the skeletal muscle of red sea bream Pagrus major and characterized to obtain information on post mortem tenderization of fish muscle. Four gelatinolytic activities, G1 (90 kDa), G2 (65 kDa), G3 (60 kDa), and G4 (100 kDa), were detected in the Q Sepharose column. G1, the major gelatinolytic enzyme, and G4(More)
Meat quality of freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) treated with soybean and bambara groundnut extracts at different concentrations was monitored during 10 days of iced storage. During storage, the control sample (without treatment) had a higher pH, TCA-soluble peptide content, heat soluble collagen content, proteolytic activities and psychrophilic(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)
Human thymidylate synthase (hTS; EC is one of a small group of proteasomal substrates whose intracellular degradation occurs in a ubiquitin-independent manner. Previous studies have shown that proteolytic breakdown of the hTS polypeptide is directed by an intrinsically disordered 27-residue domain at the N-terminal end of the molecule. This(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)
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)
Collagen degradation is known to be involved in the post mortem tenderization of fish muscle. A serine proteinase that is assumed to be related to collagen degradation after fish death was purified from the sarcoplasmic fraction of red sea bream Pagrus major by ammonium sulfate fractionation and column chromatography on Sephacryl S-300, Q Sepharose and(More)
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)
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)
