Ara h 1 was purified from raw peanuts (Arachis hypogaea L.) in the presence or absence of protease inhibitors. N-Terminal amino acid sequences were determined after western blotting. Both purification procedures proved to be very consistent and resulted in identical chromatographic and electrophoretic behavior of Ara h 1 and in the isolation of identical proteins of approximately 64 kDa with RS/H_PPGERTRG as the N-terminal amino acid sequence. Consequently, purified Ara h 1 appears to be… CONTINUE READING
