An improved version of Tobacco Etch Virus (TEV) AcTEV™ Protease is highly site-specific, highly active and significantly more stable than native TEV protease, resulting in enhanced long-term activity.

  • Highly specific cleavage activity
  • Enhanced enzyme stability for prolonged protease activity
  • Activity over a broad temperature (4°C to 30°C) and pH (6.0 to 8.5) range
  • Six-histidine sequence to facilitate its removal from the digested protein sample
  • Greater than 85% single-band purity with no nonspecific protease contamination

  • Application
    • 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 protein
    Enzyme specifications
    • Purified from E. coli expressing the AcTEV™ Protease gene
  • Unit definition
    • One unit of AcTEV™ Protease cleaves 85% of a 3μg control substrate in 1 hr at 30°C
  • Unit reaction conditions
    • 50mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 0.5mM EDTA, 1mM DTT, 3μg control substrate, and 1 unit enzyme in 30μL for 1 hr at 30°C AcTEV™ Protease is functionally tested for the absence of any nonspecific protease activity
