Proteinase K, Powder
Proteinase K from the fungus Engyodontium album is a non-specific serine protease that is useful for general digestion of proteins. It is used for the removal of endogenous nucleases during the preparation of DNA and RNA; preparation of tissue sections for in situ hybridization. Proteinase K catalyzes the hydrolysis of esters and peptide bonds. It is used with non-aqueous hydrated solvents for synthesizing peptides. Proteinase K is used to break the cross-linking that develops secondary to formalin fixation and expose the target sequence for primers and polymerase.
