Size 1 ml
1. To generate active Cathepsins from inactive Procathepsins.
2. To test the activity of Cathepsins.
3. To screen for Cathepsin Inhibitor candidates.
1. Adjust the concentration of the target Procathepsin to 0.5-5 mg/ml with the appropriate buffer.
2. Add equal amounts of EZAct™ Procathepsin Activation Buffer and mix well by pipetting up and down.
3. Incubate at the appropriate temperature (4°/ 22°/ 37°C) for the study.

Cathepsins (CTS) are proteases that degrade proteins. They are present in all animals and other organisms. These proteases are of three types: cysteine proteases, aspartyl protease and serine proteases. Cathepsins are produced as inactive proenzyme precursors that are subsequently activated in lysosomes. Biovision’s EZAct™ Procathepsin Activation Buffer is a ready-to-use buffer for generation of active cysteine/aspartyl Cathepsins by auto-activation of the Procathepsins.
