IdeZ Protease was originally identified in S. equi subsp, zooepidemicus. Here we have expressed and purified a modified recombinant IdeZ, and show that it has significantly improved activity against mouse IgG2a and IgG3 subclasses when compared to IdeS. We also demonstrate the use of IdeZ in LC-MS workflows for human and mouse IgG characterization.
