Endopeptidase contaminant: Not more than: 0.01 U/mg protein (as μmole tyrosine equivalent per min released from casein.)


0.1 mg in serum bottle

Package size based on protein content.

Preparation Note

Reconstitute in 20 mM tricine, pH 8.0, with 0.05% bovine serum albumin. Dilute the enzyme with the reconstitution buffer to 0.15-0.3 U/mL for a working concentration. Solutions should be prepared fresh prior to use.

Unit Definition

One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 μmole of L-leucine-p-nitroanilide to L-leucine and p-nitroaniline per min at pH 8.0, 25 °C and 3.0 mM substrate concentration.

Physical form

Contains calcium acetate


Aminopeptidase I from Streptomyces griseus may be used as a reagent for the analysis of protein structure and as a model for studies of proteolytic enzyme activation by calcium ions. It may be used as a reagent in the assay of endoprotease activities with a synthetic substrate in a two-stage assay . The lyophilized powder also contains calcium acetate.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Aminopeptidase I from S. griseus has a fairly broad specificity, being able to remove the N-terminal residue of most proteins, except where the penultimate residue is an imino acid. It contains two Zn2+ binding sites. Aminopeptidase I from S. griseus is inhibited by 1,10-phenanthroline and is activated six-fold by Ca2+, which also stabilizes it against heat inactivation. This monomeric zinc metalloprotein has an isoelectric point (pI) of 5.4.
