In this study, a new affinity gel for the purification of bovine testicular hyaluronidase (BTH) was synthesized. L-Tyrosine was added as the extension arm to the Sepharose-4B activated with cyanogen bromide. m-Anisidine is a specific inhibitor of BTH enzyme. m-Anisidine was clamped to the newly formed Sepharose-4B-L-tyrosine as a ligand. As a result, an affinity gel having the chemical structure of Sepharose-4B-L-tyrosine-m-anisidine was obtained. BTH purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation and affinity chromatography was obtained with a 16.95% yield and 881.78 degree of purity. The kinetic constants K-M and V-Max for BTH were determined by using hyaluronic acid as a substrate. K-M and V-Max values obtained from the Lineweaver-Burk graph were found to be 2.23mM and 19.85 U/mL, respectively. In vitro effects of some chemicals were determined on purified BTH enzyme. Some chemically active ingredients were 1,1-dimethyl piperidinium chloride, beta-naphthoxyacetic acid and gibberellic acid. Gibberellic acid showed the best inhibition effect on BTH.
