[Determination of activity of aspartic proteinases by cleavage of new chromogenic substrates].


Chromogenic hexapeptides Dnp-Ala-Ala/Ser-Phe-Phe-Ala-Arg-NH2 containing a Phe-Phe bond, which is sensitive to aspartic proteinases, were used as substrates for assaying the activity of pepsin, chymosin, and aspergillopepsin A. The assay was performed after the separation of hydrolyzates on SP-Sephadex by measuring at 360 nm the absorbance of the… (More)
