New proteases for Mass Spectrometry:  Chymotrypsin & Endoproteinase Lys-C

Endoproteinase Lys-C is a sequencing grade serine protease that hydrolyzes specifically at the carboxyl side of Lys.  The enzyme is optimal in the pH range of 7.0–9.0 and may be used alone or in combination with other proteases for peptide mapping applications or protein identification by mass spec. It is suitable for digestion reactions in-solution or in-gel.

Endoproteinase Lys-C catalogue page

Chymotrypsin is a highly-purified serine endopeptidase derived from bovine pancreas that preferentially hydrolyzes at the carboxyl side of aromatic amino acids: Tyr, Phe and Trp. Cleavage may also be observed, but at a lower rate, at Leu and Met.  The enzyme is optimal in the pH range of 7.0–9.0 and may be used alone or in combination with other proteases to produce protein digests for peptide mapping applications or protein identification by peptide mass fingerprinting or MS/MS spectral matching. It is suitable for digestion reactions in-solution or in-gel.

Simplify your Mass Spectra by using Immobilized Trypsin
Promega trypsin now comes in a convenient immobilized format.  Immobilized Trypsin provides a fast and convenient method for digesting purified or complex proteins over a wide range of concentrations. With the spin column format, digested peptides are easily separated from the Immobilized Trypsin, reducing enzyme interference during analysis.

ECL Western Blotting Substrate

The ECL Western Blotting Substrate is a highly sensitive non-radioactive, enhanced luminol-based chemiluminescent substrate for the detection of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) on immunoblots. The ECL Western Blotting Substrate detects picogram amounts of antigen, and with the use of photographic or other imaging methods, visualizes the presence of HRP.

CellULAR Analysis

Measure ADP levels direct with this accurate, sensitive, and universal kinase assay

ADP-Glo Kinase Assay is a luminescent assay that measures ADP formation from a kinase reaction. ADP is converted into ATP, which is converted into light by Ultra-Glo luciferase. The assay is well suited for measuring the effects chemical compounds have on the activity of a broad range of purified kinases making it ideal for both primary screening as well as kinase selectivity profiling. The ADP-Kinase Assay can be used to monitor the activity of virtually any ADP-generating enzyme (e.g., kinase or ATPase) using up to 1mM ATP.

Measure deconjugating enzyme activity

The DUB-Glo™ Protease Assay (DUB/SENP/NEDP) is a homogeneous, bioluminescent assay that measures the activity of numerous deconjugating enzymes including deubiquitinating (DUB), deSUMOylating (SENP) and deneddylating (NEDP) proteases. These proteases reverse the protein modification by ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like proteins (Ubl proteins) and thus are integral components in the complex mechanisms of posttranslational protein regulation in eukaryotes.

Automated Total Nucleic Acid Purification

Viral total nucleic acid extraction is a critical step in infectious disease research or molecular diagnostics. The Maxwell® 16 Viral Total Nucleic Acid Purification Kit is used with the Maxwell® 16 Instrument configured with the low elution volume (LEV) hardware.  The total nucleic acid purification procedure is an easy method for efficient, automated purification of viral total nucleic acid from up to 16 samples. The low elution volume of 50μl results in more concentrated purified nucleic acid for downstream applications such as quantitative PCR (qPCR) or quantitative RTPCR (qRT-PCR). The Maxwell® 16 Instrument purifies high-quality viral total nucleic acid from 100μl, 200μl or 300μl of plasma or serum.

Stem Cells
Authenticate your cell lines
The StemElite™ System provides the reagents required for successful and simple identification and authentication of human cell lines and detection of intra-species cell line cross-contamination (specifically mouse). The StemElite™ System uses short tandem repeat (STR) analysis of specific loci in the human genome through co-amplification and three-color detection of ten loci (nine STR loci and Amelogenin for gender identification) and one loci specific to mouse. All eleven STR regions are amplified simultaneously in a single tube.
