Bacterial leucyl aminopeptidase, EC 188.8.131.52.
The 29 kDa Aeromonas Aminopeptidase is produced by genetic engineering and can be used for physical & structural investigations, sequence and amino-terminal determinations. This exopeptidase recognizes a specific stop sign at –X- Pro and requires a free a-amino group in the L-configuration. It is therefore suitable for the removal of the redundant N-terminal methionine often added to engineered recombinant proteins.
Sterile filtered liquid formulation.
Buffered solution containing 10mM Tris-HCl, 100mM NaCl and 5µM ZnSO4, pH 8.0.
Two years when stored at -20°C, 2 weeks at 4°C.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SEC-HPLC.
One unit of aminopeptidase activity is defined as the amount of enzyme that releases 1 μmole p-nitroaniline at 25°C in 1 minute.
Recombinant Aeromonas Aminopeptidase was found to have an activity of 108 Units/mg protein.
