Affinity-chromatography purification of alkaline phosphatase from calf intestine.


PMID 1218082

Abstract

A crude preparation of alkaline phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.1) from calf intestinal mucosa was purified by affinity chromatography on Sepharose-bound derivatives of arsanilic acid, which was found to be a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme. Three biospecific adsorbents were prepared for the chromatography, and the best results were obtained with a tyraminyl-Sepharose derivative coupled with the diazonium salt derived from 4-(p-aminophenylazo)phenylarsonic acid. Alkaline phosphatase was the only enzyme retained by the affinity column in the absence of Pi. The enzyme eluted by phosphate buffer had a specific activity of about 1200 units per mg of protein at pH 10.0, with 5.5mM-p-nitrophenyl phosphate as the substrate.
