Reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) on a column of Radial-Pak C18 cartridge was utilized for the purification of a variety of growth hormone (GH) proteins from mammalian, avian, amphibian and fish pituitary glands. Recovery of GH from pituitary glands of up to 0.43% of total protein was obtained with a high degree of homogeneity as revealed by sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The HPLC-purified GHs show reactions of identity or near identity by immuno-diffusion studies on agar gel. This method offers a convenient and rapid purification of vertebrate GH on an analytical or preparative scale.
