Hydrophobic hydration is considered to have a key role in biological processes ranging from membrane formation to protein folding and ligand binding. Historically, hydrophobic hydration shells were thought to resemble solid clathrate hydrates, with solutes surrounded by polyhedral cages composed...

Neutrophils were isolated in good yield from fresh whole blood and their alkaline phosphatase was solubilized. Inhibitor studies using L-phenylalanylglycylglycine, L-phenylalanine and L-homoarginine revealed a distinct pattern of inhibition for each of the crude or purified preparations of the human...

The butanol extraction method of Morton (1950), a routine step in enzyme purification, is discussed with special reference to a hydrophobic form of alkaline phosphatase from human liver tissue. This form slowly precipitates from butanol-extracted liver tissue homogenates stored at...
