Native Streptomyces griseus Pronase |
Pronase is a mixture of several nonspecific endo- and exoproteases that digest proteins down to single amino acids.
Use Pronase to completely hydrolyze proteins in research applications. Pronase is used for the degradation of proteins during the isolation of DNA and RNA, such as in the extraction of phage DNA or the isolation of plasmid DNA. It is not necessary to let pronase self-digest prior to use. It is also used in histochemistry and cell culture for tissue dissociation in conjunction with collagenase and trypsin, and for the production of glycopeptides from purified glycoproteins.
