General description

Pepsin is an aspartic endoproteinase isolated from pig gastric mucosa. It is mainly used for the unspecific hydrolysis of proteins and peptides in acidic media. It also provides a limited hydrolysis of native immunoglobulins to yield biologically active fragments.

Specificity

Aspartic endopeptidase with relatively broad specificity. Preferential cleavage: hydrophobic, preferably aromatic, residues in P1 and P1′ positions.

Application

Pepsin has been used for the digestion of liver tissue obtained from rat.

Preparation Note

Working concentration: 0.05 to 0.5 mg/ml
Storage conditions (working solution): A pepsin solution is stable at 2 to 8 °C, at least for one week, at neutral pH and under germfree conditions. Frozen aliquots of the enzyme solution are expected to be more stable.

A stock solution in 10 mM HCl (5-10 mg/ml) should be stable for at least one week at 2 to 8 °C, too. Storage light protected, tightly closed.

A short (2 minutes) incubation at 40 °C has negligible effect on the activity of lyophilized pepsin or pepsin in solution.

Other Notes

For life science research only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
