- Products Characteristics
Proteinase K from Parengyodontium album (Tritirachium album) is a subtilisin-related serine protease. It is a broad spectrum endopeptidase with very high specific activity. It is widely used for digestion of proteins, including DNases and RNases, during nucleic acid preparations without compromising integrity of isolated DNA or RNA. Proteinase K is active under wide range of reaction conditions, including elevated temperatures and 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.
- 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 denaturing conditions (e.g. in the presence of urea and/or SDS), what makes it ideal for digesting proteins in 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 powder, lyophilized “cake” or liquid.
- Extraction of DNA and RNA from different starting materials.
- Purification of target material from contaminating proteins.
- Removal of DNases and RNases during nucleic acids isolation.
One unit of Proteinase K hydrolyzes urea-denaturated hemoglobin producing color equivalent of 1 μmol tyrosine per 1 min at 37°C and pH 7.5 (Folin & Ciocalteu’s method), 1 U = 1 mAnsonU.

Blirt’s Proteinase K MBG shelf life is guaranteed up to 2 years (storage at -20°C).
Maintains activity ≥30 U/mg after 3 years with storage at -20°C.
Proteinase K MBG Solution recommended storage is -20°C
Temporary exposures to temperature changes e.g. during transportation or experiments bring no differences in protein activity even at +37°C storage in 18 months.
Automation of the Proteinase K MBG Production results in minimal batch to batch activity variation .
Consistency in product characteristic in all delivered batches guaranties reliable experiment’s results and stable working conditions.
Blue line represents declared minimum activity (≥ 30 U/mg). Batch-to-batch variation is 3,0% (with measurement error ± 1-6%).
