Abstract

A phosphatase catalysing the hydrolysis of organophosphorus pesticides was purified to homogeneity using Cibacron 3GA-Sepharose CL 6B affinity chromatography. The enzyme which is localized in the periplasm of the bacterium Image NC5 was extracted by treating with 0.2M MgCl2, pH 8.4. The enzyme was adsorbed to the Cibacron-Sepharose at pH 7.0 and eluted with Tris-HCl buffer at pH 8.0, with 47 per cent recovery. The enzyme thus obtained was electrophoretically homogeneous. This simple affinity purification procedure enhances the potential for its use in large scale detoxification systems.
