  • A glutamic acid-specific protease has been purified to homogeneity from Bacillus licheniformis ATCC 14580 utilizing Phe-Leu-D-Glu-OMe-Sepharose affinity chromatography and crystallized. The molecular weight of the protease was estimated to be approximately 25,000 by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. This protease, which we propose to call BLase (glutamic acid-specific protease from B. licheniformis ATCC 14580), was characterized enzymatically. Using human parathyroid hormone (13-34) and p… CONTINUE READING
