Product News Feb 13, 2007
Sigma-Aldrich has announced that it has launched Protease Finder, an Internet-based program expected to accelerate customers' success by providing a targeted proteolytic enzyme search capability.
Sigma-Aldrich's Protease Finder can identify individual proteases that can be used to cleave a distinct peptide bond within the researchers protein or peptide sequence. The user need only input the amino acids surrounding their desired cleavage site.
According to Company, this tool can allow researchers to find specific cleavage information for over 70 unique enzymes, as well as providing access to even more detailed technical information.
Protease Finder can eliminate the time needed to determine which proteolytic enzyme best suits a cleavage application. All search results reference existing Sigma-Aldrich enzymes.
"Giving researchers the ability to quickly identify the correct protease for their needs, the Protease Finder saves valuable time while providing both useful information and products," said Bob Gates, Product Manager, Proteins and Enzymes.
He said, "With over 140 proteolytic enzyme products available, Protease Finder displays the breadth of Sigma-Aldrich's Enzymes product line."
