Widely used in DNA purification, Proteinase K is a broad-spectrum protease from Tritirachium album that is ideal for preparing chromosomal DNA. It cleaves peptide bonds where carbonyl groups are surrounded by aromatic, hydrophobic, or aliphatic amino acids.
Chromosomal DNA produced using Proteinase K is ideally suited for use in the following applications: pulsed field electrophoresis, chromosomal DNA for protein fingerprinting, and nuclease removal from DNA and RNA preparations.
