Studies of the comparative properties of proteins and enzymes from closely related species are receiving increasing attention as an approach to understanding the relationships betwcen molecular structures and functions (1). Outstanding examples of these are the studies on the hemoglobins by Pauling et al. (2) and the studies on ribonucleases by Rnfinsen et al. (3). The purpose of this approach is to utilize the similarities or differences provided by nature in the proteins or enzymes from… Expand

The egg-white proteins of the Adelie penguin.
On the basis of comparison of the properties of the egg-white proteins, the Adelie penguin is much more closely related to the lower water fowl than to the ratites. Expand
Egg-white and blood-serum proteins functioning by noncovalent interactions: Studies by chemical modification and comparative biochemistry
The structure-function relationships of transferrins, which chelate metal ions; avian ovomucoids, which form complexes with proteolytic enzymes; and antifreeze glycoproteins, who interact at the ice-solution interface, are studied. Expand
The inhibitory properties of avian ovoinhibitors aganist proteolytic enzymes.
Arginine residues were found essential for the trypsin-inhibitory activity of these ovoinhibitors and modification of the same ovoInhibitors with 1,2-cyclohexane-dione, an arginine reagent, abolished their tryps inhibitory activities. Expand
Stoichiometry of the interaction of lima bean protease inhibitor with trypsin and/or chymotrypsin
The results clearly indicate that the monomer of LB1 (M.W. ‘L 9000) can form 1: 1 molar complexes with either enzyme and also a tertiary complex with one mole of each of these two enzymes. Expand
Biochemistry of the egg-white proteins of the ratite group.
Close biochemical and immunochemical relationships were found among the ratites, and they appeared remotely related to the tinamou. Expand

It was demonstrated with the aid of the casein precipitating inhibition test (CPI-test) that chicken egg white, colostrum from different animal species, and extracts of grain and potato, containedExpand
Physical characterization of ovoinhibitor, a trypsin and chymotrypsin inhibitor from chicken egg white.
Enzymic studies confirm that ovoinhibitor, like turkey ovomucoid but unlike chicken ovomUcoid, inhibits trypsin and chymotrypsin, the inhibition of one enzyme being essentially unaffected by the presence of the other. Expand
Some properties of a ficin-papain inhibitor from avian egg white.
Egg whites of chicken, tinamou, turkey, quail, and chukor contain an inhibitor of ficin, a protein with quite different amino acid composition as compared with chicken ovomucoid and ovoinhibitor and does not contain carbohydrate. Expand
Lima bean protease inhibitor: Comparative study of the trypsin and chymotrypsin inhibitory activities of four chromatographically pure variants
This study provides the first comprehensive comparison of the inhibitory activities of four variants of LBI and finds that LBI appears less active than LB1 in an assay system which does not involve preincubation between enzyme and inhibitor. Expand
The conalbumins gave the most extensive cross reactions of any of the major egg-white components, but a minor constituent gave a more extensive cross reaction than conalbumin. Expand
