A comparative evaluation of methods for determining the activity of chymotrypsin

  • M. T. Proskuryakov


A method has been developed for determining the activity of chymotrypsin with respect to the coagulation of milk-acetate mixture in N. P. Pyatnitskii's modification. In specificity and sensitivity, this method approaches that based on the hydrolysis of N-acetyl-D, L-phenylalanine p-nitroanilide.
