General description

PreScission Protease is a genetically engineered fusion protein of human rhinovirus 3C protease and glutothione S trasferase (GST). PreScisson protease specifically cleaves between the Gln and Gly residues of the recognition sequence LeuGluValLeuPheGln/GlyPro.


Specific, low temperature cleavage of fusion protein tags; Simple on-column cleavage during affinity purification
PreScission Protease has been used for eluting GST-tagged AT3, during in vitro ubiquitination reactions and AT3-Ub preparation. It has also been used to cleave GST tag from the a-enolase during induction of GST a-enolase expression in the protease-deficient BL21 strain of Escherichia coli.
