Extraction & Application of Papain Enzyme on Degradation of Drug

Authors(1) :-D.N.Joshi

Extraction of papain enzyme from ripe papaya gives around 80-90% activity. Lumps Formations and Absorptiometry methods were studied to know the action of papain enzyme. The enzyme was extracted and shows degradation capability on Levetiracetam and Granisetron HCl drug compounds which has harmful effects on cellular systems. The efficacies of the enzymatic activities were checked when drugs were analyzed by TLC, spectrophotometer before and after the treated with papain enzyme.
