Purification of tonin by affinity chromatography.
Tonin has been purified from rat submaxillary glands. The purification procedure included affinity chromatography on Sepharose 4B coupled to antitonin followed by DEAE chromatography and gel filtration on Sephadex G-100. Homogeneity of the purified enzyme was confirmed by Sephadex G-100 gel filtration, disc electrophoresis, and isoelectric focusing on polyacrylamide gel, immunodiffusion, and immunoelectrophoresis. The tonin was purified 11.5-fold, with 35% recovery. The purified tonin has full enzymatic or immunological activity.
