Tobacco Etch Virus Protease is a highly site-specific cysteine protease that is found in the tags from fusion proteins. The optimal temperature for cleavage is 30°C; also it can be used at temperature as low as 4°C. It is recommended that the cleavage for each fusion protein be optimized by varying the amount of recombinant viral TEV protease, reaction time, or incubation temperature. It can be removed by Ni2+ affinity resin.
