Protein analysis: Asparaginylendopeptidase
Asparaginylendopeptidase specifically cleaves peptide bonds on the carboxyl side of asparagine residues, including –Asn-Pro– bonds. The cleavage specificity of this enzyme has been validated on many peptides and proteins, confirming that bonds located on N-terminal or N-second position asparagine residues are not cleaved. Only those bonds adjacent to C-terminal asparagines residues are cleaved. Because asparagine residues bound to sugar chains are not cleaved, this enzyme can be used for protein analysis of sequenced glycoproteins. Asparaginylendopeptidase is isolated from Jackbean (Canavalia ensiformis).
