Purification of the human placental NAD-linked 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase.

An NAD-linked 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase has been purified 13,100-fold from human placental tissue. The specific activity of the purified enzyme ranges from 6900 to 8300 mU/mg protein depending on the method used to determine the protein concentration. On discontinuous electrophoresis in sodium dodecyl sulfate more than 95% of the protein… CONTINUE READING
