The SARS CoV-2 3CL protease (C30 Endopeptidase) derived from human SARS-CoV-2 is a C30-type cysteine protease situated in the NS3 segment. SARS CoV-2 3CL protease biological functionality is needed to process viral polyproteins to functional complete units. SARS CoV-2 3CL protease (main protease) is the core protease protein in CoV and corresponds to non-structural protein 5. SARS CoV-2 3CL cleaves the CoV polyprotein at 11 locations. SARS CoV-2 3CL protease has a cysteine-histidine catalytic dyad at its active site and cleaves a Gln–(Ser/Ala/Gly) peptide bond. SARS CoV-2 3CL protease at position P1 cleaves the bond between the glutamine and serine/alanine/glycine. SARS CoV-2 3CL protease is necessary in the processing of the CoV replicase polyprotein.
Recombinant Coronavirus 2019 3CL Protease having a Mw of approximately 33.8 kDa was purified from E. coli. The CoV-2 3CL contains 306 amino acids and purified by proprietary chromatographic technique.
Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
CoV-2 3CL solution contains 5 % Trehalose, 0.02 % Tween-20 and PBS, pH 7.4.
It is recommended to add deionized water to prepare a working stock solution of approximately 0.5mg/ml and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely. CoV-2 3CL is not sterile! Please filter the product by an appropriate sterile filter before using it in the cell culture.
Store lyophilized protein at -20°C. Aliquot the product after reconstitution to avoid repeated freezing/thawing cycles. Reconstituted protein can be stored at 4°C for a limited period of time; it does not show any change after two weeks at 4°C.
