Proteinase K is a broad-spectrum serine protease originally isolated from fungus Engyodontium album (Tritirachium album). The enzyme was named “proteinase K” for its ability to digest keratin. Structural and molecular biology studies suggest that the enzyme belongs to the subtilisin family characterized with a catalytic triad (Asp39-His69-Ser224) in the active site. Proteinase K has no pronounced cleavage specificity and the preferential cleavage site is the peptide bond adjacent to hydrophobic amino acids.

Advantages of Our Recombinant Proteinase K

Applications of Recombinant Proteinase K
Proteinase K is commonly used in molecular biology to remove protein contamination from preparations of highly native, undamaged nucleic acid because it rapidly and effectively inactivates nuclease to prevent degradation of DNA or RNA. Such degradation is usually difficult to stop even with the presence of denaturing reagents.
