Protein digestion for structural analysis: Pfu Protease S
Pfu Protease S is an endo-type serine protease with broad specificity for native and denatured proteins. Cleavage occurs mainly on the carboxy terminus of peptide bonds on hydrophobic amino acid residues.
- Digestion of proteins and peptides for primary structure analysis
Recombinant Bacillus encoding the Pyrococcus furiosus protease gene
