Abstract

A simple method is described for the isolation, on a preparative scale, of arginine vasopressin, oxytocin, and α-MSH, from a single beef posterior pituitary extract. These hormones are obtained in a high state of purity and with maximal biological activities. The method involves a preliminary precipitation, which is followed by chromatography on carboxymethylcellulose and gel filtration.
