    Proteinase K

    Application In molecular biology Proteinase K (EC, protease K) is a broad-spectrum serine protease. The enzyme was discovered in 1974 in extracts of the fungus Engyodontium album (formerly Tritirachium album). Proteinase K is able to digest hair (keratin), hence, the name "Proteinase K". The predominant site of cleavage is the peptide bond adjacent to

    Uses of Enzymes in Various Industries

    Enzymes are biological molecules that catalyze chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process are converted into different molecules called products. Almost all chemical reactions in a biological cell need enzymes in order to occur at rates sufficient for life. Some enzymes are used commercially in various industries. Here’s a
