Abstract

A trypsin-like serine proteinase was purified from the incubation medium of rat brain slices by gelatin zymography. The purification consisted of ammonium sulfate precipitation, benzamidine-Sepharose 6B affinity chromatography, and carboxymethyl-cellulose and gel filtration chromatographies. The gelatinolytic activity, identified at 22 kDa (P22) by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis under nonreducing conditions, was eluted as one active peak throughout the purification, and the final preparation gave a single protein peak on reverse-phase HPLC. Diisopropyl fluorophosphate, benzamidine, p-toluene-sulfonyl-L-lysine chloromethyl ketone, and aprotinin completely inhibited the activity of P22, whereas phenanthroline, p-toluene-sulfonyl-L-phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone, and elastinal did not. P22 efficiently digested the extracellular matrix proteins laminin and type IV collagen. P22 produced an increase in intracellular Ca2+ concentration in A172 glioblastoma, which was desensitized through prior stimulation with protease-activated receptor-2 agonist peptide SLIGKV, indicating that P22 can stimulate protease-activated receptor-2. Rat brain penetration injury induced gelatinolytic activity in the lesioned area whose molecular size was consistent with that of P22. These results indicated that on incubation of rat brain slices, a trypsin-like serine proteinase was secreted into the medium that was capable of digesting extracellular matrix and stimulating protease-activated receptor-2. It is suggested that the gelatinolytic activity induced by brain injury might be that of P22.
