Post Re: Proteinase K mechanism

Hello Interesting question.

I have used Proteinase K, and it digests every protein! Proteinase K is a broad acting serine protease. Proteinase K was discovered in 1974 from extracts of the fungus Tritirachium album.

Here is the original article:
Ebeling W, Hennrich N, Klockow M, Metz H, Orth HD, Lang H (1974). "Proteinase K from Tritirachium album Limber". Eur. J. Biochem. 47 (1): 917. PMID 4373242.


If you need more info check here:

Not sure why it was called "K" but the original article may have a clue.

i went through that article before. it'll tells you the properties of Proteinase K, but the paper doesn't mention anything about the mechanism apart from the the involvement of serine in the mechanism.
however, the article is very useful. thanks for the help.
