Abstract

Tertiary amines appear to be the minimal structure needed to convert in vitro the inactive form (E-form) of pneumococcal amidase to the catalytic active form (C-form). Diethylethanolamine was one of the compounds that converted the E-form, a finding that has been used successfully to develop an affinity chromatography system in DEAE-cellulose for the rapid and efficient purification of lytic enzymes of pneumococcus and its bacteriophages.
