Introduction

Enteropeptidase or enterokinase is an enzymeinvolved in human digestion. It is produced by cells in the duodenum wall, and is secreted from duodenum's glands, the crypts of Lieberk?hn, whenever ingested food enters the duodenum from the stomach. Enteropeptidase has the critical job of turning trypsinogen(a zymogen) to trypsin, indirectly activating a number of pancreaticdigestive enzymes.
Enteropeptidase is a serine proteaseenzyme(EC3.4.21.9). Enteropeptidase is a part of the Chymotrypsin-clan of serine proteases, and is structurally similar to these proteins.

Description

Porcine enteropeptidase is a specific protease which cleaves after the lysine at its recognition site: Asp-Asp-Asp-Asp-Lys. Enterokinase will not cleave a site followed by proline. Theoretical Mw is 21,880 Dalton, the apparent Mw on SDS-PAGE is about 40 kDa.
If a fusion tag is located in the N-terminus with an enterokinase site, enterokinase will be able to remove the fusion tag and to generate the protein exactly as you need without adding any unwanted residues. ProSpec’s enterokinase is a highly purified enterokinase from porcine. The enzyme has been extensively purified and tested to ensure that there are no other contaminating proteases.
