Proteins of the isolated brush border membrane of Hymenolepis diminuta were hydrolyzed in vitro by chymotrypsin, papain, pepsin, subtilopeptidase A (= subtilisin Carlsberg), and trypsin. Neither proteolytic nor amidase activity was demonstrable in the isolated membrane using proteinaceous (casein and hemoglobin) or chromogenic (benzoyl-arginine-p-nitroanilide and succinyl-alanyl-alanyl-propyl-phenylalanine p-nitroanilide) substrates, and the membrane preparation did not inhibit the proteolytic… CONTINUE READING
