A colorimetric method to estimate alpha 2-macroglobulin (MG) in human serum is described which is based on the capacity of MG:alpha-chymotrypsin complex to hydrolyze N-acetyl L-tyrosine ethyl ester in the presence of excess crude preparation of a trypsin/chymotrypsin inhibitor from redwood seed. Acetyltyrosine formed was measured using Folin's reagent (7).(More)
One manifestation of cystic fibrosis (CF) is the presence of a viscid mucus secretion in the lungs. The clearance of this mucus is significantly slower than in "normals" due to uncoordinated beating of the cilia and the increased viscosity of the mucus. In these studies, the permeabilities of p-aminosalicylic acid, isoniazid, and pyrazinamide through(More)
A specific enterokinase inhibitor from kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) was purified to homogeneity. It showed a single protein band on sodium dodecyl sulphate/polyacryl-amide-gel electrophoresis in the presence of mercaptoethanol, and the Mr was 31000. Aspartic acid was identified as the N-terminus of the inhibitor. The Mr by gel chromatography on Sephadex(More)
