Dissociating Enzymes: Trypsin Inhibitor (Soybean)

The trypsin inhibitor from soybean inactivates trypsin on an equimolar basis; however it exhibits no effects on the esterolytic, proteolytic or elastolytic activities of porcine elastase. Cell isolation procedures occasionally call for a trypsin inhibitor, usually the inhibitor from soybean (Worthington code SIC).
