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)
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 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)
