Abstract

A method hos been developed for the solubilization of cholinesterase from whole mayflies (Hexagenia bilineata, Soy). Solubilization is enhanced through the use of: (1) protamine sulfate, (2) sephadex, (3) sodium taurocholate, and (4) ammonium sulfate-sodium bicarbonate treatments. Partial purification of the enzyme is also reported. Fractions representing a final activity of 246 units and a purification factor of 17.79 are presented.
