A gastricsin-like proteinase was purified from gastric mucosa of Atlantic cod by a single step purification scheme on ion-exchange of Amberlite CG-50. The purification was very efficient as the recovery was 205% and the purification factor was 1796-fold. The enzyme preparation was homogeneous as observed by SDS-PAGE and isoelectric focusing. The enzyme has an estimated molecular weight of 34 kDa and the pI of 4.4.
