gamma-Glutamyltransferase [EC] (gamma-GTP) was purified to a homogeneous state from bovine liver. It had an apparent molecular weight of about 110,000, as judged by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and consisted of two non-identical glycopeptides with molecular weights of 68,000 and 27,000. The amino acid composition of the bovine liver enzyme was similar to those of other gamma-GTPs. The enzyme contained large amounts of neutral sugars, amino sugars and sialic acid, although the… CONTINUE READING
