Isolation and characteristics of the protein C activator from Agkistrodon halys halys snake venom
Protein C activator from Agkistrodon halys halys venom has been isolated and purified by ion-exchange and gel-filtration chromatography. The purified enzyme consists of the single peptide-chain with molecular weight of 34 kDa. Its pH-optimum was in 7,5–8,0 range. The enzyme was inhibited by DFP, benzamidine, PMSF, EGTA. Protein C activator was as effective as “Protac” (Pentapharm AG, Switzerland).
