Under Construction

TrypZean®

4.6/5
is a recombinant, animal-free alternative to bovine or porcine trypsin.
TrypZean® is produced in plants and has the same kinetics as native trypsin

Description

General description

Certified animal-free, TrypZean® eliminates the risk of animal-source contaminants such as viruses and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).

Application

Cell culture: Dissociation of attachment –dependent cell lines from plasticware in serum-free and serum-supplemented systems
Insulin manufacture: Cleaves “C” peptide from proinsulin to form active insulin

Packaging

For quantities less than 1 gram, visit Sigma-Aldrich (Product No. T3568).

Biochem/physiol Actions

For dissociation of cultured cells.

Avidin

4.6/5
Avidin is a glycoprotein that binds tightly to biotin. It is used as an industrial reagent, most notably in diagnostics kits.  ABI offers a recombinant avidin, certified animal-free, eliminating the risk of pathogens.

Description

General description

Its activity is dependent on several factors including inhibitors in the substrate.

Application

Avidin is a glycoprotein that binds tightly to biotin. It is used as an industrial reagent, most notably in diagnostics kits.

Cellobiohydrolase

4.6/5
Cellobiohydrolase is a β-glucanase, CBHI, from Hypocrea jecorina, expressed in maize [2-3]. CBHI is an exo-cellulase enzyme which cleaves cellulose at non-reducing ends of the polymer, yielding cellobiose.

Description

General description

Certified animal-free, TrypZean® eliminates the risk of animal-source contaminants such as viruses and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).

Application

Cellobiohydrolase can be used in combination with endocellulases and beta-glucosidase to produce glucose from cellulose.

Packaging

For quantities less than 1 gram, visit Sigma-Aldrich (Product No. T3568).

Biochem/physiol Actions

For dissociation of cultured cells.

Endocellulase

4.6/5

Endocellulase is an endoglucanase, E1, from Acidothermus cellulolyticus, expressed in maize

Description

General description

The enzyme is highly specific to cleaving the 1,4-glycosidic bond of the cellulosic chain. This can be used to treat pulp fibers to increase their self-adherence when making paper sheets.

Application

Enzyme preparations can also be used in combination with cellobiohydralase and β-glucosidase to produce glucose from cellulose.
