Protein fragmentation for sequencing: Endoproteinase Asp-N
Endoproteinase Asp-N is a metalloprotease that hydrolyzes peptide bonds on the amino terminus of aspartic and cysteic acid (oxidized cysteine). If the cysteine residue is reduced or alkylated, Endoproteinase Asp-N will cleave only the amino terminus of aspartic acid residues. The enzyme is supplied with a 250 mM sodium phosphate buffer (pH 8.0).
