Purification and characterization of a multicatalytic proteinase from crustacean muscle: comparison of latent and heat-activated forms.


A high-molecular-weight (Mr 740,000) multicatalytic proteinase (MCP) was purified over 3100-fold from soluble extracts of lobster claw and abdominal muscles. The enzyme was extracted from muscle in a latent state; brief (3 min) heating of an ammonium sulfate fraction (45-65% saturation) at 60 degrees C irreversibly activated the proteinase while denaturing… (More)
