Chemical Relations between Renal and Urinary Kallikrein of Rat
The ratio in μ-Moles between each aminoacid residue of both hydrolized renal and urinary kallikrein of rat, is about 1.00 ± 0.3. Except for Glu, His and Glucosamine a good proportion between all residues of both enzymes was obtained. It is probable that the different molecular weight, respectively 40,000 for the renal kallikrein and 32,000 for the urinary enzyme, is an artefact of the different procedures used for the purification of rat kallikrein.
