Lysostaphin from Staphylococcus staphylolyticus

lyophilized powder, Protein 50-70 % by biuret, ≥500 units/mg protein

Synonym: Glycyl-glycine Endopeptidase

Purchase

Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lysostaphin is a zinc endopeptidase with a molecular weight of approximately 25 kDa. Because lysostaphin cleaves the polyglycine cross-links in the peptidoglycan layer of the cell wall of Staphylococcus species it has been found useful for cell lysis and also as a potential anti-microbial therapeutic.
pH Optimum for activity: ~7.5

Packaging

1, 5, 15 mg in glass bottle

Unit Definition

One unit will reduce the turbidity (A620) of a suspension of Staphylococcus aureus cells from 0.250 to 0.125 in 10 min at pH 7.5 at 37°C in a 6.0 ml reaction mixture.
