TEV Protease (EC:, Tobacco Etch Virus protease) is a cysteine protease that recognizes the cleavage site of Glu-Xaa- Xaa-Y- Xaa-Gln-(Gly/Ser) and cleaves between Gln and Gly/Ser. The optimal sequence is Glu-Asn-Leu-Tyr-Phe-Gln-Ser/Glycine (ENLYFQS/G). TEV Protease has high specificity and great stability and is active over a wide range of temperatures (4-37°C) with an optimal activity at 34°C. BioVision’s TEV Protease Activity assay kit utilizes the ability of TEV Protease to cleave a synthetic Fluorescein-based peptide substrate to release fluorescein which can be easily quantified using a fluorometer or fluorescence microplate reader (Ex/Em = 490/560 nm). This assay kit is simple, rapid and can detect TEV Protease activity as low as 50 ng/well in viral lysates and purified protein samples.
