Abstract : The richest source of kallikrein in the body is the submaxillary gland of the rat. A significant amount of the enzyme in this gland is located in subcellular particles, in granules. The submaxillary gland of the white adult male mouse contains less kallikrein but it has renin as well in large quantities. Granules obtained from the homogenized gland of the mouse released both kallikrein and renin. Four different centrifugation procedures, however, have failed to separate the kallikrein and renin containing particles. The present report describes some additional properties and separation of kallikrein and renin containing the granules. (Author)
