The excess of free inhibitor for the enzyme NADase present in the crude cell-free extracts of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv has been purified by chromatography on a DEAE-cellulose column and adsorption and elution from alumina Cγ-gel. Some of the properties of the purified inhibitor have been studied and attempts have been made to elucidate the nature of combination between the enzyme and the inhibitor. The purified inhibitor may be glycoprotein in nature, and considerable loss in the activity of the inhibitor preparations could be brought about by trypsin digestion. The inhibitor was specific for the enzymes from M. tuberculosis H37Rv or H37Ra and could be stored for at least 6 months in the frozen state below 0 ° without any significant loss in activity. The inhibition was noncompetitive with respect to the substrates, and the enzyme-inhibitor complex formed was undissociable.
