Rapid affinity purification and properties of rat liver sorbitol dehydrogenase.

A 23-h affinity chromatography purification procedure for sorbitol dehydrogenase (L-iditol:NADl-oxidoreductase, EC 1.1.1.14) prepared from freshly excised rat liver has been developed that resulted in an 18% yield of an apparently homogeneous preparation (purification = 439-fold). The molecular weight of the enzyme was approx. 96 000. The enzyme was… (More)
