    Description

    Genenase™ I is a variant of subtilisin BPN´ that has been engineered to have increased specificity by substituting amino acids in its active site (1,2). When designing fusion proteins for cleavage with Genenase I, we recommend the site Pro-Gly-Ala-Ala-His-Tyr. Genenase I will cleave at other histidine residues depending on the surrounding amino acids and the 3-dimensional conformation of the protein. Genenase I cleaves His-Tyr-Glu and His-Tyr-Asp slowly, but will not cleave His-Tyr-Pro or His-Tyr-Ile (2).

    Product Source

    Isolated from a Bacillus subtilis strain carrying the protease gene derived from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens.

    Specificity

    Genenase I cleaves His-Tyr-Glu and His-Tyr-Asp slowly, but will not cleave His-Tyr-Pro or His-Tyr-Ile (2).

    Properties and Usage

    Unit Definition

    0.5 μg of Genenase I will cleave 50 μg of test substrate to 95% completion in a total reaction volume of 50 μl in 8 hours or less at 23°C in 20 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0 @ 25°C) with 200 mM NaCl.

    Storage Temperature

    -20°C

    Molecular Weights

    Apparent: 28 kDa
    Theoretical: 27.4 kDa

    Notes

    1. The rate of Genenase™ I cleavage has been shown to depend on the amino acid following the cleavage site (position P1')(3). Rates of cleavage when P1' is Asp or Glu are slowest, 40-fold slower than when P1' is Arg or Cys. The rate when P1'= Glu or Asp is enhanced 10- and 14-fold, respectively, by including 2 M KCl in the reaction.
