About this book


Specificity of Proteolysis presents a survey and conclusions on the action or proteinases - enzymes which are cleaving proteins or peptides. The specificity of proteinases which is determined as the sequence of amino acids at the cleavage site of a substrate, is an important criteria to choose an enzyme as tool in protein research. Whenever one is looking for an enzyme to act at a defined site or to give defined cleavage products one will find comprehensive information in this work. Comprehensive information about more than 280 endopeptidases which are based on the database LYSIS including a calculation program to determine cleavage sites, is given in the book.
