As a glycosyl hydrolases, they can catalyze the hydrolysis of chitin, the second most abundant polysaccharide on earth. Chitinolytic enzymes are necessary in the development of metabolism for arthropoda and fish. In human, there are many kinds of chitinolytic enzymes and chitinase-like proteins. Their physiological functions are yet appreciated.
In this study, chitinase and related proteins from human plasma were identified using liquid chromatography. In one method, Blue Sepharose 6 affinity liquid chromatography and DEAE Sepharose ion exchange liquid chromatography were used to separate proteins from human plasma. A protein with molecular weight of 150 kDa, could be identified by western blot using ChBD antiserum. In other way, chitin affinity liquid chromatography and DEAE Sepharose ion exchange liquid chromatography were used to separate proteins from human plasma. A protein with molecular weight of 30 kDa was identified with ability to catalyze the hydrolysis of glycol chitin by in-situ activity staining on SDS-PAGE.
