Proteinase K


SKU: TG4039 Categories: , Tags: ,

Proteinase K is a subtilisin-like endolytic protease that is isolated from the saprophytic fungus Tritirachium album.  It has a high activity that is stable across a wide range of pH and temperature conditions and is suited to short digestion times.  The activity of proteinase K is increased at elevated temperatures up to 65° C. Calcium is not essential to the function of proteinase K.  Therefore, EDTA and other chelating agents do not interfere with the activity and may be used alongside proteinase K to inactivate calcium-dependent nucleases in DNA and RNA preparation.
