We prepared three columns containing bovine serum albumin immobilized on silica by different means and the effects of organic modifiers in the eluent on chiral separation were studied using N-substituted amino acids. Adsorption on silica, covalent immobilization to diol-silica with carbonyldiimidazole (CSP-II) and covalent immobilization to amino-silica(More)
High-performance liquid chromatographic analysis of human serum albumin, using a column containing quaternized dimethyl-aminomethylstyrene-ethylene glycol dimethacrylate, was performed by isocratic elution. This column afforded resolution of albumin components, such as human mercaptalbumin and human nonmercaptalbumin. The method is an alternative to(More)
A simple and direct method using an N-methylpyridinium polymer-based (4VP-Me) column for the detection of the human serum albumin (HSA)-captopril (Cp) conjugate was developed. By this method, a new peak corresponding to an HSA-Cp conjugate was detected in the serum from a patient receiving Cp. The new peak was composed of a 1:1 molar ratio of Cp and HSA.(More)
Two types of 4-methylpyridinium polymers (4VP-DVB-Me and 4VP-EG-Me, cross-linked with divinylbenzene and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate, respectively) were employed for the analysis of proteins in ion-exchange high-performance liquid chromatography. These polymers had different physical properties in the dry state, but showed similar retentions in(More)
A chelating ion exchange resin containing aminophosphonic acid groups was used as a polymer matrix for the preparation of an insoluble macromolecular Sn(II)(R-Sn) complex. Sn(II), which strongly bound to the surface of the polymer matrix by chelation, retained the ability to reduce 99mTc in the R-Sn complex. Human serum albumin-bearing-mercapto groups (HMA)(More)
A gene coding for a major extracellular chitosanase was isolated from Aspergillus oryzae IAM2660. It had a multi-domain structure composed of a signal peptide, a catalytic domain, Thr- and Pro-rich linkers, and repeated peptides (the R3 domain) from the N-terminus. The R3 domain bound to insoluble powder chitosan, but it did not promote the hydrolysis rate(More)
A macroreticular poly(acrylic acid)-based resin with triazolethiol as the functional group has been synthesized. The stability of the resin in acidic media and the behaviour in sorption and desorption of various metal ions have been investigated and compared with those of the acylthiosemicarbazide resin which is an intermediate in synthesis of the(More)
Extraction chromatography using macroreticular ethylstyrene-divinylbenzene beads impregnated with monothiodibenzoylmethane (SBB) solution has been investigated. Of the solvents used as the stationary phase, heptan-1-ol showed the highest rate of metal extraction, and loading with 0.5 ml of the solvent per g of resin was found to be the optimum. A column(More)
Macromolecular Sn(II) complex (R-Sn) was developed using a chelating resin containing aminophosphonic acid groups as a reducing agent of 99Tcm(VII) in the preparation of 99Tcm radiopharmaceuticals. Since Sn(II) was bonded strongly to the resin by chelation, release of Sn from R-Sn was rarely observed in saline solution. 99Tcm labelling with a yield greater(More)
