Purification and characterization of human pancreatic ribonuclease.

A ribonuclease (RNase) has been isolated from normal human pancreas obtained upon autopsy. About 5 mg of RNase is normally recovered per kilogram of pancreas, equivalent to ca. 70% of the total activity and a 700-fold purification from the initial acidified extract. The specific activity of the purified enzyme is identical with that of bovine pancreatic… CONTINUE READING
