Biochem/physiol Actions

This inhibitor acts against trypsin, and chymotrypsin and plasmin to a lesser extent. It will also inhibit proteases with mechanisms similar to trypsin, plasma kallikrein and coagulation Factor X. The trypsin inhibitor will not act against metalloproteases, tissue-baseed kallikrein, acid proteases, or thio proteases. This inhibitor acts by forming a 1:1 stoichiometric complex with the protease active site, and then cleaving a single arginine-isoleucine bond on the inhibitor. The inhibition is both reversible and pH dependent.

Components

The soybean trypsin inhibitor is a monomeric protein containing 181 amino acid residues in a single polypeptide chain crosslinked by two disulfide bridges.

Unit Definition

One trypsin unit will produce a ΔA253 of 0.001 per min with BAEE as substrate at pH 7.6 at 25 °C; reaction volume 3.2 ml, 1 cm light path.
One trypsin unit = A253 of 0.001 per minute with N-alpha-benzoyl-L-arginine ethyl ester (BAEE) as substrate at pH 7.6 at 25 °C.

Preparation Note

The trypsin inhibitor is soluble in water and phosphate buffers at 10 mg/mL. It is soluble in balanced salt solutions at 1 mg/mL and in serum-free media. Concentrated solutions greater than 10 mg/mL may be hazy and have a yellow to amber color. After trypsinizing cells, resuspend in 1 mL trypsin inhibitor solution at 1 mg/mL for every mL of trypsin solution used for dissociation. The cell suspension should then be centrifuged at 1000 rpm, forming a cell pellet.

Solutions can retain activity when stored short-term at 2-8° C. Solutions are stable in frozen aliquots at -20°C.

Analysis Note

One mg of trypsin inhibitor will inhibit a minimum of 1.0 mg Trypsin of activity ~10,000 BAEE units/mg trypsin.

  4. What is the Department of Transportation shipping information for this product?

    Transportation information can be found in Section 14 of the product's (M)SDS.To access the shipping information for this material, use the link on the product detail page for the product. 

  5. What is the molecular weight and amino acid sequence of trypsin inhibitor from Glycine max (soybean)?   

    Soybean trypsin inhibitor is a mixture of the three types. We have not characterized our trypsin inhibitor products in terms of how much of each of the three types may be present. All three have a molecular weight of between 20,000 and 20,200 daltons, so one might use 20,100 daltons as an average.The three types vary in the amino acids at a few positions. The detailed summary of the three types (or variants) was published in the following linked reference:     J. Biochem. (Japan), 98, 435-448 (1985).Note that the authors use Tia, Tib and Tic to indicate the three variants.
