  • 17 Need to Know Facts About RNase A 2018-11-13 09:00:36 Introduction to RNase Ribonucleases (RNases) are a large group of hydrolytic enzymes that degrade ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules. RNases are nucleases that catalyze the breakdown of RNA into smaller components. RNases are a superfamily of enzymes which catalyze the degradation of RNA, operating at
  • Proteinase K Applications in Prion-Related Diseases 2018-11-10 11:01:49 Proteinase K degrades almost every protein and inactivates rapidly enzymatic activities under a broad range of conditions (SDS, Urea, pH 4 -12). The enzyme is used for the isolation of clean and native genomic DNA and RNA in order to guarantee PCR based detection. prions, prion, proteinase k

  • Dithiothreitol aka Cleland’s Reagent 2017-10-02 09:57:11   Dithiothreitol or DTT is also known as Cleland’s Reagent. It contains two thiol groups and is commonly used to reduce disulfide bond in proteins. It can protect many thiol-containing biomolecules such as coenzyme A (Co-A), GSH (glutathione) from forming disulfide bonds. Not
