PreScission Protease is a fusion protein of glutathione S-transferase (GST) and human rhinovirus (HRV) type 14 3C protease. The optimum recognition site for this enzyme is the sequence Leu-Glu-Val-Leu-Phe-Gln/Gly-Pro (LEVLFQ/GP) and cleavage occurs between the Gln and Gly-Pro residues. Substrate recognition and cleavage are likely to be dependent not only upon primary structural signals, but also upon the secondary and tertiary structures of the fusion protein as well.
This material is offered for research, laboratory or further evaluation purposes. NOT FOR HUMAN USE.
One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme needed to cleave 100 μg of fusion protein in 16 hours to 90% completion at 5°C in a buffer containing 50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.0, 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, and 1 mM DTT.
50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.0 (at 25 °C), 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM dithiothreitol. Chill to 5 °C prior to use.

|During cleavage reactions, it is recommended that samples be removed at various time points and analyzed by SDS-PAGE to estimate the yield, purity, and extent of digestion. The amount of PreScission Protease, temperature and length of incubation required for complete digestion of a given GST fusion partner may vary depending on the fusion partner. Optimal conditions for each fusion should be determined in pilot experiments. Digestion may be improved by adding TritonTM X-100, TweenTM 20, NonidetTM, or NP40 to a concentration of 0.01%. Concentrations of these detergents up to 1% do not inhibit PreScission Protease.|
