Isolation and Purification of Active Proteases from Sheep Abomasum and Their Biological Activity
- 8 Downloads
Sheep abomasum active proteases (SAPs) were purified by chromatography over a column of Sephadex G-25 and by ultrafiltration. The SAPs were found to contain proteases of molecular mass 14 kDa and active peptides with molecular masses varying in the range 651.39–4248.08 Da. Peptide fractions of SAPs reduced significantly (up to 72.0 ± 2.3% inhibition) accumulation of malondialdehyde (MDA) in brain homogenate of laboratory rats.
