This research proposes a method for separating and purifying tissue-type plasminogen activator from a fungal cell source.

This work was designed to establish methods for purifying a fibrinolytic enzyme with high purity and fibrinolytic activity from Trichoderma reesei-submerged culture liquid. Presently, the majority of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) is separated and purified from biological tissues or anima cells. Separation and purification of t-PA from genetically recombined T. reesei, a fungus, has not been reported. This research proposes a method for separating and purifying t-PA from this fungal cell source. The method, characterized by low cost, high activity recovery, and simple operation, can be applied in clinical settings.
