Comparison of low and high calcium requiring forms of the calcium-activated neutral protease (CANP) from rabbit skeletal muscle.

Two distinct calcium-dependent neutral proteases (CANPs) with different sensitivities to calcium ions were purified concurrently by almost the same procedures from rabbit skeletal muscle and their enzymatic properties were compared (sensitivity to various divalent metal ions, the pH dependency and heat-stability of the activity, and the hydrolytic activity… (More)
