1. A factor X activator was isolated from the venom of Vipera aspis aspis (Aspic viper) by gel filtration and ion-exchange chromatography. 2. The purified activator has a mol. wt of 75,000 and an isoelectric point of 4.6. Upon reduction, this activator migrated as two bands with mol. wts of 16,000 and 14,000 in sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel… CONTINUE READING
