Isolation and Characterization of a Cysteine Protease from the Latex of Araujia hortorum Fruits

A new protease was purified to mass spectroscopy homogeneity from the latex of Araujia hortorum Fourn and showed remarkable caseinolytic activity at high temperatures, although its thermal stability decayed rapidly.

Characterization of three novel alkaline serine proteases from tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum Mill.) fruit and their potential application.

In order to quest new potential plant protease and make it industrially applicable and cost-effective, three novel proteases were detected in tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum Mill.) fruit by sodium

SEP-1 – a subtilisin-like serine endopeptidase from germinated seeds of Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Morex

SEP-1 was present in resting seeds, and its activity increased during germination in all of the malted barley tissues except for the endosperm, where it never occurred, suggesting that the enzyme is not likely involved in storage-protein degradation.



Isolation and characterization of proteinases from the sarcocarp of snake-gourd fruit.

Experimental evidence indicated that the snake-gourd proteinases are similar in their properties to cucumisin, which is isolated from the sarcocarp of melon fruit.

Characterization of a Maize Root Proteinase

Based on data, the maize root proteinase appears to cleave peptide bonds at the carboxy side of alanine, which should have useful applications in protein chemistry.

Isolation and Characterization of a Possible Native Cucumisin from Developing Melon Fruits and Its Limited Autolysis to Cucumisin

It was concluded that the purified 67-kD enzyme is a native form of cucumisin, and that cucumisi is a product derived by the limited autolysis of the 67- kD proteinase.

Synthesis and application of sorbents for affinity chromatography of serine proteases

A synthetic peptide derivative, Ala-Ala-Leu-N(CH2CH2)2O, is suggested as a specific ligand for affinity chromatography of subtilisin-like serine proteases that prefer hydrophobic amino acid residue in P1 position of their substrates.
