A proteinase with elastolytic activity was isolated from granules of rabbit bloodstream leukocytes, and purified to apparent homogeneity by a multi-step procedure consisting of ammonium sulfate precipitation, batch fractionation on DEAE-Sephadex A-50, and finally by preparative isoelectric focusing (IEF) on Sephadex G-75 Superfine. The molecule weight of the enzyme, as determined by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), was 28,500. This enzyme shows an isoelectric point at pH 9.0. The proteinase is active against natural elastins as well as toward Suc-(Ala)3-NA, Methoxy-Suc-(Ala)2-Pro-Val-NA, and (to a lesser extent) against Suc-(Ala)2-Pro-Leu-NA and Boc-Ala-ONp. The inhibition profile of the isolated enzyme indicates that rabbit granulocyte elastase belongs to the group of serine proteinases. Inhibition by some natural proteinase inhibitors is also observed. Unlike other mammalian elastases, it is insensitive to elastatinal.
