Glycosylation variants of endopeptidase-24.11 ('enkephalinase').

Anion exchange chromatography resolves two charge variants of rat kidney endopeptidase-24.11 (designated NEP 1 and NEP 2); each was purified to homogeneity using immunoaffinity chromatography. In addition to charge differences the subunit molecular weights of NEP 1 and NEP 2 differ and are 89 and 96 kDa, respectively. Isoelectric focusing resolved 8-10 pl… CONTINUE READING
