5 kDa. Typically a mixture of factor XIIf1 and factor XIIf2 is obtained seen as a doublet in SOS gels. PK is converted to kallikrein (Fig. , 1976) by factor XIIa (or factor XIIf ). It is a g globulin of 84 kDa and on SDS gel electrophoresis has two closely spaced bands that differ in carbohydrate content. The protein sequence of the two forms is identical. Activation occurs by cleavage within a disulfide bond (Chung, Fujikawa, McMullen, & Davie, 1986) such that a heavy chain of 50 kDa is disulfide linked to a light chain of either 33 kDa or 36 kDa.
