Partial purification of topoisomerase IB from serum of diabetic patients and study it's kinetic properties and molecular weight

Abstract

This study was done to partially purification of topoisomerase IB from serum of diabetic patients using Gel filtration technique, by using Sephadex G 100 gel. A single peak in fraction four has been obtained, and the degree of purification (17.1) fold, enzyme yield (108.2%) and specific activity (0.189ng/mg). Kinetics studies for the partial purified enzyme were carried out which showed optimal concentration of substrate which was (0.1ng/ml), Michael's - Menten constant (Km=0.033ng) and maximum velocity (Vmax=0.90 ng/ml), while optimum Temperature was (37C°) and optimum pH was (7.5). The molecular weight of the partial purified enzyme has been determined by gel electrophoresis method, in presence of polyacrylamide gel and sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS-PAGE) which showed that the approximated molecular weight was (66KD).
