Abstract

Using column chromatography on superdex-75, MonoS and PAGE methods allowed to separate two highly purified protein proteinase inhibitors from Sophora japonica seeds, named SJ-I and SJ-II. Each of them showed inhibitory activity against both trypsin and chymotripsin.

The molecular mass of both inhibitors were estimated around 16 kDa. However, they were different in pI value: 6.2 for SJ-I and 5.85 for SJ-II.

The heat stability of two inhibitors was also similar: after the treatment of inhibitors at 70oC for 3 min, TIA remained 40% and after 15 min, TIA completely lost.

All obtained data led to a suggestion that SJ-I and SJ-II were isoforms and might be a Bowman - Birk type double headed inhibitors of higher molecular mass.
