Yeast Kex-2

Slide this table

Size250 µg
Price199 €
SourceInsect cells
Purity Confirmation> 95% by SDS-PAGE & HPLC analyses
Length [aa]558
Molecular Weight60.4 kDa
Endotoxin Levels< 0.1 ng/µg of protein (<1EU/µg)
Biological ActivityRecombinant Kex-2 from High-5 insect cells contains the same specific activity and recognition sequence specificity as yeast derived KEX-2. 1 milligram of recombinant KEX-2 contains activity equivalent to at least 40 units of yeast derived KEX-2. Cleaves at the carboxyl side of K/R-R.
Buffer10mM Sodium Acetate, pH 6.0 + 5mM CaCl
ReconstitutionCentrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at ‑20°C to -80°C.
Stability and StorageThe lyophilized protein is stable at room temperature for 1 month and at 4°C for 6 months. Reconstituted working aliquots are stable for 1 week at 2°C to 8°C and for 12 months at -20°C to -80°C.
SynonymsEndoproteinase Lys/Arg-Arg, Protease KEX2, Proteinase YSCF
DescriptionProteases (also called Proteolytic Enzymes, Peptidases, or Proteinases) are enzymes that hydrolyze the amide bonds within proteins or peptides. Most proteases act in a specific manner, hydrolyzing bonds at or adjacent to specific residues or a specific sequence of residues contained within the substrate protein or peptide. Proteases play an important role in most diseases and biological processes including prenatal and postnatal development, reproduction, signal transduction, the immune response, various autoimmune and degenerative diseases, and cancer. They are also an important research tool, frequently used in the analysis and production of proteins. Kex-2 cleaves at the carboxyl end of the recognition sequences Arg-Arg/X and Lys-Arg/X. Recombinant Yeast Kex-2 is a 60.4 kDa protease consisting of 558 amino acid residues.
