Large-scale purification of prothoracicotropic hormone of the silkworm (Bombyx mori).

Abstract

Prothoracicotropic hormone has been successfully extracted from as many as 2,800,000 silkworm male adult heads and purified partially through an 8-step procedure. Approximately 7 microgram of the crude preparation ("crude PTTH") shows activity in the debrained Samia pupa test. A further 4-step chromatographic purification of the "crude PTTH" derived from 100,000 Bombyx heads yields 3.4 mg of purified preparation ("highly purified PTTH"), of which 7 ng causes adult development in a debrained Samia pupa.
