Proteinase K from Parengyodontium album (Tritirachium album) is a subtilisin-related serine protease. It is a broad-spectrum endopeptidase with a very high specific activity. It is widely used for the digestion of proteins, including DNases and RNases, during nucleic acid preparations without compromising the integrity of isolated DNA or RNA. Proteinase K is active under a wide range of reaction conditions, including elevated temperatures and the presence of SDS. This recombinant enzyme is expressed in Pichia pastoris, and undergoes extensive purification to yield the highest quality product. An extra purification step results in significantly increased solubility (2.5 fold), increased specific activity, and decreased DNA content, compared to our Molecular Biology Grade product.
Below, you can see the comparison of Proteinase K MBG and NGS Grade (Table 1 ).
- Recombinant broad-spectrum non-specific protease derived from Tritirachium album and over-expressed in Pichia pastoris.
- High activity and exceptional purity (Molecular Biology Grade & NGS Grade).
- Active at high temperatures (up to 56°C) and under denaturing conditions (e.g. in the presence of urea and/or SDS), which makes it ideal for digesting proteins in a variety of applications.
- Stable over a wide pH range: 4.0–12.5 (optimum pH 7.5–8.0).
- Decreased amount of host DNA (≤ 10 pg/mg / MBG or ≤ 0.1 pg/mg NGS).
- Available as a lyophilized powder.
- Extraction of DNA and RNA from different starting materials.
- Removal of DNases and RNases during nucleic acid isolation.
- Purification of samples contaminated with different protein
- Automated isolation stations
One unit of Proteinase K hydrolyzes urea-denaturated hemoglobin producing a color equivalent of 1 μmol tyrosine per 1 min at 37°C and pH 7.5 (Folin & Ciocalteu’s method), 1 U = 1 mAnsonU.
