Abstract: Corticosteroid binding protein, transcortin, was isolated using biospecific and hydroxyapatite chromatographic procedures. Mr-60,000 of transcortin was evaluated by means of electrophoresis; isoelectric points of the protein and of its complexes were detected. The association constants of transcortin with cortisol at 4 degrees constituted 2.8.10(8) M-1/mol of protein from intact animals containing one binding site and 9.8.10(8) M-1/mol of protein from impaired rates containing 0.39 binding site per a molecule. The maximal cortisol-binding activity of transcortin was shifted towards more alkaline pH value under the pathological conditions. Circular dichroism spectra of the transcortin-cortisol equimolar complexes were studied. The proteins studied were dissimilar in their main physicochemical properties and patterns of the steroid binding.
