Large scale preparation and characterization of mucopolysaccharase contamination free heparinase.

By a combination of hydroxylapatite chromatography and negative adsorption on QAE-Sephadex at pH 8.3, heparinase (E.C. can be successfully isolated from all the other mucopolysaccharase contaminants present in Flavobacterium heparinum. Hydroxylapatite isolates heparinase primarily from chondroitinases, hyaluronidase, and most glycuronidases. QAE… CONTINUE READING
