Nonetheless, the researchers suggest, the possibility of reaction to injected chymopapain warrant concern.
Brocklehurst K, Salih E (1984) Fresh non-fruit of Carica papaya contains papain, multiple forms of chymopapain A and papaya proteinase [OMEGA].
Anti-CD16-bound cells were treated with chymopapain (ChymoCell-T; The Boots Company PLC) at 20 kat units/well for 30 min at room temperature to separate the cells from the antibody.
An example is chymopapain, used for chemonucleolysis.
grantii was stable at 50[degrees]C but loses activity at 90[degrees]C, this thermal stability is similar to other protease like Papain at 80[degrees]C [24], Chymopapain at 75[degrees]C [30], Ficin at 55[degrees]C [31] and Calatropin at 550C [21].
