The commercially available gel, 2-pyridyl disulphide hydroxypropyl ether-Sepharose (thiopropyl-Sepharose 6B), can be used to remove bound ligand completely from butyryl-CoA dehydrogenase (EC in two simple operations. The resultant enzyme forms normal complexes with acetoacetyl-CoA and CoA persulphide, contains no bound CoA as determined by the enzymatic assay for CoA, and retains full catalytic activity.
