Product information "Proteinase K MBG Solution, 20 mg/ml "

Proteinase K (Molecular Biology Grade Solution) is a serine peptidase with a very high specific activity and a broad spectrum of protein digestion possibilities.

The solution is designed to be used for protein degradation (up to tetrapeptides) during the cell lysis and RNA/DNA extraction procedures under hush reaction conditions such as the higher temperatures and the presence of detergents. The enzyme efficiently degrades DNases and RNases during nucleic acid isolation process. The high purity of the Proteinase K and controlled absence of both DNAse and RNase contamination ensures the integrity of nucleic acids.

The 100% enzyme activity (when stored at -20°C) is guaranteed for at least two years after production. However, the experiments proved that the proteinase remains close to 90% active even when stored at +37°C for 18 months.

The enzyme is supplied as a 20 mg/ml concentrated solution with an average specific activity of more than 800 u/ml.

  • Active in all common buffers used for cell lysis and RNA/DNA extraction, in a presence of urea, SDS and guanidinium salts
  • Stable at high temperature of up to 56°C
  • Can be inactivated by heating at 65oC for 20 minutes or at 75oC for 10 minutes
  • Active in a pH range of 4–12 with an optimum pH 7.5–8.0
  • The Proteinase K gene from album expressed in yeast host.
  • The quality limit of allowed host DNA presence is ≤ 0.25 pg/U measured by qPCR what is about a half when compared to other suppliers.

ALLin™ Red Taq Mastermix
highQu ALLin™ Taq DNA Polymerase is the versatile engineered enzyme which in combination with the optimized ALLin™ buffer provides higher success rates in demanding PCR applications like amplification of complex templates, crude sample PCR and fast cycling. ALLin™ Taq DNA Polymerase has the same PCR accuracy like Taq DNA Polymerase, 4.5 x 10^4 (a number of correct nucleotides incorporated before the error occurs) and produces A-tailed products suitable for ligating into TA cloning vectors. The convenience of ALLin™ Taq DNA Polymerase is maximized by the use of 2X Red Mastermix providing the additional advantage of reduced pipetting and minimized errors. ALLin™ Red Taq Mastermix, 2X is premixed with red dye and density reagents for direct loading on the gels after the PCR. In a 2% agarose TAE gel the dye migrates with~350 bp DNA, in 1% agarose TAE gel with ~ 600 bp DNA fragments. The mastermix is even supplied with the PCR Water, and the only thing to add is the template with primers.
