|Products||AcTEV Protease from Invitrogen|
|Description|| AcTEV Protease is an enhanced form of Tobacco Etch Virus (TEV) protease that is highly site-specific, highly active, and significantly more stable than native TEV protease, resulting in long-term activity. AcTEV Protease specifically recognizes a seven amino acid (Glu-Asn-Leu-Tyr-Phe-Gln-Gly, cleaving between Gln and Gly), making it useful for removing affinity tags from fusion proteins (1,2). For proper cleavage, the protein of interest is expressed with an AcTEV (TEV) Protease recognition sequence located between it and the affinity tag. Subsequent incubation with AcTEV Protease releases the protein of interest from the fusion tag. This is an effective way to remove solubility, secretion, detection, and purification tags from recombinant proteins. AcTEV Protease features|
