Nitration of tyrosine residues was performed on Bacillus circulans E 192 cyclomaltodextrin glucanotransferase (CGTase) using tetranitromethane (TNM). A maximum of 15 out of 28 tyrosine residues is modified with 8 mM TNM, entailing a concomitant loss of enzymic activity and tryptophan fluorescence. Spectroscopic studies suggest that these two phenomena are(More)
The cyclomaltrodextrin glucanotransferase (CGTase) [1,4-alpha-D-glucan:4-alpha-D-(1,4-alpha-D-glucano)-transferase (cyclizing), EC 2.4.1.19] from Bacillus circulans E 192 has been purified to homogeneity by Cetavlon treatment, ammonium sulfate precipitation, DEAE Trisacryl M chromatography, Q Fast Flow chromatography, and affinity on(More)
The complete purification of renin raises difficult problems due to its extremely low concentration in kidney (less than 1/50,000 of total proteins). The complete purification of hog kidney renin has been realized on a large scale, starting from 300 kg of fresh hog kidneys. 14.6 mg of pure renin were obtained with an overall yield of 4%. The purification(More)
