  2. TCEP HCl vs DTT: Preferred Reducing Agents

    TCEP HCl vs DTT: Preferred Reducing Agents
    TCEP. HCl has the advantages of being odorless, a more powerful reducing agent, an irreversible reducing agent, more hydrophilic, and more resistant to oxidation in air. Near complete reduction of disulfide bonds. DTT is a protective agent for reducing –S-S TO SH groups. Used as a strong reducing agent for proteins and enzymes.

  4. Frequently Asked Questions About Proteinase K

    Frequently Asked Questions About Proteinase K
    In molecular biology Proteinase K (also protease K or endopeptidase K) is a broad-spectrum serine protease. The enzyme was discovered in 1974 in extracts of the fungus Engyodontium album (formerly Tritirachium album). Proteinase K is able to digest native keratin (hair), hence, the name "Proteinase K". The predominant site of cleavage is the peptide bond adjacent to the carboxyl group of aliphatic and aromatic amino acids with blocked alpha amino groups. It is commonly used for its broad specificity.
  5. Diaphorase Enzymes - What are they?

    Diaphorase Enzymes - What are they?
    Diaphorase enzymes are a class of dehydrogenase enzymes that catalyze reactions involving the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide cofactors. Two specific members of this enzyme class, denoted as NADH diaphorase and NADPH diaphorase, are responsible for dehydrogenating the reduced forms of NAD and NADP, respectively. These enzymes, which occur naturally in all animal tissues, were first extracted in pure form by Straub...
