Trypsin from the viscera of Bogue (Boops boops) was purified to homogeneity by precipitation with ammonium sulphate, Sephadex G-100 gel filtration and Mono Q-Sepharose anion exchange chromatography, with an 8.5-fold increase in specific activity and 36% recovery. The molecular weight of the purified enzyme was estimated to be 23 kDa by SDS-PAGE and size exclusion chromatography. The purified trypsin appeared as a single band on native-PAGE and zymography staining. The purified enzyme showed esterase-specific activity on N-α-benzoyl-L-arginine ethyl ester (BAEE) and amidase activity on N-α-benzoyl-DL-arginine-p-nitroanilide (BAPNA). The optimum pH and temperature for the enzyme activity, after 10 min incubation, were pH 9.0 and 55°C, respectively, using BAPNA as a substrate. The trypsin kinetic constants Km and kcat on BAPNA were 0.13 mM and 1.56 s(-1), respectively, while the catalytic efficiency kcat/Km was 12 s(-1) mM(-1). Biochemical characterisation of B. boops trypsin showed that this enzyme can be used as a possible biotechnological tool in the fish processing and food industries.
