Trypsin/Lys-C Mix, Mass Spec Grade
Trypsin/Lys-C Mix, Mass Spec Grade, is a mixture of Trypsin Gold, Mass Spectrometry Grade, and rLys-C, Mass Spec Grade. The Trypsin/Lys-C Mix is designed to improve digestion of proteins or protein mixtures in solution. Using the conventional trypsin digestion protocol (i.e., overnight incubation at nondenaturing conditions), Trypsin/Lys-C Mix improves protein digestion by eliminating the majority of missed cleavages, which occur at prominent quantities in trypsin digests. Trypsin/Lys-C Mix enhances digestion and compensates for the trypsin proteolytic inefficiency at lysine sites. Replacing trypsin with Trypsin/Lys-C Mix in this conventional protocol leads to multiple benefits for protein analysis including more accurate mass spectrometry-based protein quantitation and improved protein mass spectrometry analytical reproducibility. Trypsin/Lys-C Mix also provides greater tolerance to trypsin-inhibiting agents, assuring efficient digestion of proteins for which protein purification is limited or not feasible.
