Description Proteinase K is a nonspecific serine protease with a very high specific activity. It is useful for digestion of proteins,and it remains active
Product Background In molecular biology Proteinase K (also known as protease K or endopeptidase K) is a broad-spectrum serine protease. The enzyme was discovered in 1974 in extracts of the fungus Engyodontium album (formerly Tritirachium album). Proteinase K is able to digest native keratin (hair), hence the name Proteinase “K”. The predominant site of cleavage is the peptide bond adjacent to the carboxyl group of aliphatic and aromatic amino acids with blocked alpha amino groups. It is commonly used for its broad specificity. This enzyme belongs to peptidase family S8. The molecular weight of Proteinase K is 28,900 daltons (28.9 kDa).Proteinase K, which is a broad spectrum serine protease, is used in many DNA extraction protocols to digest these contaminating proteins.
