PROTEASE & NUCLEASE
We offer multiple efficacious nucleases and proteases. Ultra-active Nuclease is our generic production of benzonase. It cleaves all forms of DNA and RNA into small pieces of nucleotides. This product is mainly used to remove residual nucleic acid contaminates from cell extracts. It can be used in the preparations of proteins, vaccines, and antibodies to reduce viscosity of cell lysates in the downstream process. Proteinase K can be used in COVID-19 testing, as well as in many other genetic tests. Proteinase K breaks down enzymes interfering with testing in a sample of genetic material. In COVID-19 tests, the survived coronavirus genetic material will be treated and amplified to confirm the existence of the coronavirus. We also offer HRV 3C protease, which specifically cleaves a fusion protein, effectively removing a fusion tag during protein preparation.
CYTOKINE GROWTH FACTOR
Growth factors are small proteins or hormones which can stimulate cell growth and differentiation, as well as regulate a variety of other cellular processes. Growth factors can function as an extracellular signal and bind to specific receptors, resulting in intracellular components altering gene expression. Our newly developed FGF-2 functions as a basic fibroblast growth factor. It has many biological applications, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion, and can be applied to stem cell therapy. We also offer cytokine Interleukin-2, which was initially called T-cell growth factor. It stimulates proliferation and enhances the function of T-cells, natural killer (NK) cells and B-cells.
