- In this paper, a Kunitz trypsin inhibitor from soybean meal was isolated to apparent homogeneity by a combination of phosphoric acid extraction, heat treatment, ammonium sulfate precipitation, ion exchange chromatography, affinity chromatography and gel filtration. The results showed that the specific activity of 4733 Uúmg-1 and purification fold of 72.39 were obtained. The purified Kunitz trypsin inhibitor appeared a single protein band in SDS-PAGE electrophoresis. The accurate molecular mass of this inhibitor was determined as 22907.51Da by MALDI-TOF. Partial amino acid sequence of the purified protein from Edman degration showed a high degree of homology with various members of the Kunitz-inhibitor family.
