Purification of glutamate dehydrogenase from ox brain and liver. Evidence that commercially available preparations of the enzyme from ox liver have suffered proteolytic cleavage.

1. A rapid procedure, involving ion-exchange chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and affinity chromatography on GTP-Sepharose, was used to purify glutamate dehydrogenase from ox brain and liver. 2. Preparations purified in this way differed from those of the ox liver enzyme that were obtained from commercial suppliers in their mobilities on polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulphate. This difference appears to result from the occurrence of limited proteolysis during the preparation of the latter enzyme samples. 3. N-Terminal sequence analysis showed the presence of four amino acid residues in the enzyme prepared in this study that were not present in those obtained from the commercial sources and which have not been reported in previous studies on the sequence of the ox liver enzyme. 4. A preliminary examination of the enzyme prepared in this way indicated that the Michaelis constants for the substrates are similar to those obtained from the commercial preparation, but that the response to allosteric effectors was modified.[1]
