Native Bovine Chymotrypsinogen A

Cat No.
NATE-0134
Description
Chymotrypsinogen is a proteolytic enzyme and a precursor (zymogen) of the digestive enzyme chymotrypsin. It is a single polypetide chain consisting of 245 amino acid residues. It is synthesized in the acinar cells of the pancreas and stored inside membrane-bounded granules at the apex of the acinar cell. The cell is then stimulated by either a hormonal signal or a nerve impulse and the contents of the granules spill into a duct leading into the duodenum.
Abbr
Chymotrypsinogen A, Native (Bovine)
Source
Bovine Pancreas
Species
Bovine
Form
lyophilized powder
Activity
Activates to at least 45 units per mg protein
CAS No.
9035-75-0
Purity
Purified, Five times crystallized, electrophoretically homogeneous
Specificity
In addition to bonds involving aromatic amino acids, chymotrypsin catalyzes at a high rate the hydrolysis of bonds of leucyl, methionyl, asparaginyl, and glutamyl residues. A recent study has been made by Berezin and Martinek (1970) and Baumann et al. (1970).
Unit Definition
One Unit hydrolyzes one micromole of benzoyl-L-tyrosine ethyl ester per minute at 25°C, pH 7.8 in the presence of calcium. An activity of 45 units per mg using the above definition, is the equivalent of 10 kDa optical density of 1330 N.F. units per mg using ATEE as a substrate.
Stability
The enzyme is stable for days in solution at pH 3.0 and for years as a dry powder when stored refrigerated.
Storage
Store at 2-8°C
Inhibitors
The enzyme is inhibited by heavy metals, the natural trypsin inhibitors to various degrees (Birk 1961), an inhibitor from potato (Ryan and Balls 1962), and organophosphorus compounds. Gel filtration of chymotrypsin removes autolysis products and other contaminants (Yapel et al. 1966). The specificity of α-chloroketone as α-chymotrypsin inhibitor has been studied by Kumar and Hein (1970). Erlanger et al. (1970) report phenothiazine-N-carbonyl chloride to be specific for chymotrypsin inhibition.
