By investigating the reaction of papain with thiamine derivatives of various disulfide types following facts were found.1. The amount of thiamine formed in the reaction of papain with thiamine propyl disulfide (TPD) or thiamine disulfide (TDS) was nearly equimolar.2. Remarkable differences were found between asymmetric disulfide compounds of thiamine such as TPD and symmetric ones such as TDS in the inhibitory action on papain, the former being more marked than the latter.3.
