Papain is a proteolytic enzyme from the cysteïne proteïnase family. Electrophoretic analysis performed on the refined papain from ENZYMASE shows four distinct cysteïne proteïnases as per their increasing isoelectric points (Ip):

1. Papain "stricto sensu" (Ip: 8.7-8.9),
2. Chymopapain (Ip: 10.4-10.7),
3. Glycyl endopeptidase (Ip: 10.5 - 10.8),
4. Caricain (Ip: > 11.0).

The amino acid sequence of these enzyme components is very similar. More details on these aspects can be obtained by contacting ENZYMASE at info@enzymase.com.

The presence of small quantities of other enzymes such as lysozyme, glutamine cyclotransferase, specific glucanases and chitinases were also found.
