Abstract:

Particularly pure N2O-purged papain solutions were irradiated at 0C for different times with 60Co gamma-rays, in the presence of 10-30 mM solutions of acetate, isobutanol, and thiocyanate. Calculated inactivation probabilities per papain-radical reaction are reported in situ protection of both N2-purged and N2O saturated papain solutions by cysteine was found to occur.
