Glutamic-C, Mass Spec Grade


Cat. No.: 10514 Categories: ,


General description

Glu-C is a mass spectrometry (MS)-grade serine protease isolated from Staphylococcus aureus. It can be used individually or in combination with trypsin or other proteases to produce complementary protein digests for peptide mapping and protein sequencing. Glu-C protease is suitable for either in-solution or in-gel digestion workflows. The endoproteinase Glu-C, also referred to as V-8 Protease, specifically cleaves the carboxyl side of glutamic residues when reactions are carried out in ammonium bicarbonate and ammonium acetate buffers, generating a limited number of peptide fragments. Cleavage can also occur at both glutamic and aspartic residues in phosphate buffers. Glu-C can efficiently digest protein in 5-18 hours at 37°C. The protease remains active under denaturing conditions such as 2M urea, 1M guanidine·HCl, 0.1% SDS, 2% CHAPS and 20% acetonitrile, with optimal activity at pH 8.
