Although the milk-clotting action of papain has been recognized for many years, this property of the enzyme has received little quantitative attention. It appears to be, however, a characteristic property of the proteolytic component of this enzyme system. Various workers have brought forth evidence as to the composite nature of the papain system, which has at least two components. In the most recent work Bergmann and coworkers (l-3) have tentatively designated them as Papain Peptidases I and… Expand

THE EFFECT OF THE ACTIVITY STATE OF THE ENZYMES ON THE IN VIVO ACTIVITY OF PAPAIN
TLDR
The activity of two papain samples having widely different ratios of active-to-reversibly-inactive enzymes were compared to determine the extent of intragastric digestion, and, more particularly, whether the reversibly inactive forms were active in vivo. Expand
A NEW METHOD FOR THE ASSAY OF PAPAIN

Papain is described by the National Formulary’ as “the dried and purified latex of the fruit of Carica Papaya, Linne (Fam. Caricuceae). It possesses a digestive activity not less than that of theExpand
STUDIES OF METHODS FOR MEASURING THE PROTEOLYTIC ACTIVITY OF PAPAIN
TLDR
Papain, along with a method for its assay, was recently admitted to the 8th edition of the National Formulary and thus became an official drug in 1946, but it was soon found that the official method of assay gave results that were different from those obtained by other methods employed in these laboratories, so a new method for the proteolytic activity of papain had to be developed.

CORRELATION OF THE RESULTS OBTAINED BY BEEF‐DIGESTION, GELATIN‐DIGESTION, AND MILK‐CLOTTING METHODS OF MEASURING THE PROTEOLYTIC ACTIVITY OF PAPAIN
Sixty different samples of papain were examined. All except two of these had been prepared from fresh latex, in connection with other studies concerning the effect of various factors on the activityExpand
The use of papain-EDTA for Rh typing with `incomplete' antisera

  • 1962
TLDR
It has now been found that a modified method of preparation and the addition of a small amount of di-potassium EDTA as a chelating agent results in a more potent and stable extract which can safely be used with a papain: antiserum ratio of 2:1. Expand
A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE ON THE POTENTIAL THERAPEUTIC SIGNIFICANCE OF PAPAIN
  • K. Hwang, A. Ivy
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1951
TLDR
The term papain will be restricted to designate the whole dried product from the latex from the unripe fruit of Carica papaya, which contains proteolytic enzymes and other possible components. Expand
An investigation into the use of activated and non-activated papain in routine rhesus blood grouping
The activities of three commercial products of papain were compared as supplied and after activation, and when used in the enzyme-serum method for rhesus (D) grouping. Certain dangers in activationExpand
Enzyme Production by Species of Cephalosporium
The culture filtrates of ten species of Cephalosporium, which had been grown under conditions of submerged culture, were tested for enzymatic activity against each of seven substrates. The latterExpand
[5] Plant proteolytic enzymes
Publisher Summary Proteolytic enzymes have been found in both dicotyledonous and monocotyledonous plants. Representative of the dicotyledonous are the fig, papaya, milkweed, and euphorbia; and of theExpand
Factors affecting bacteriolysis using lysozyme in dual enzyme systems.
Abstract Dual-enzyme systems, in which lysozyme was present with papain or trypsin, were found to lyse heated cells of several species of bacteria normally resistant to either enzyme alone. TheExpand
