Abstract

The action of purified cathepsin D on hemoglobin was examined using micellar electrokinetic chromatographic separation of peptide products. Purified cathepsin D was incubated with hemoglobin in 40 mM Na-formate pH 3.1 at 37 degrees C for varying lengths of time. The reaction was stopped by the addition of the inhibitor pepstatin, and the peptide products were isolated from the reaction mixture by ultrafiltration with a 10,000 molecular weight cut-off (MWCO) microfuge type filter. Filtered samples were then separated in 100 mM Tris-Cl pH 8.5 containing sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) or Na-deoxycholate at micellar concentrations using a 50-microns (i.d.) fused-silica capillary. Detection was performed at 214 nm. It was found that Na-deoxycholate containing separations were superior in resolution and required less time. This technique was used to determine initial velocity (expressed as peak area per unit time) for nine peptides. Several peptides resulted after very short incubation times (< 10 min). This suggests that this approach may be useful for the determination of cathepsin D activity.
