I am trying to characterize a novel protease secreted by a bacterium.
Could anyone help me with the following questions please:
(i) What kind of tests must I do to characterize the type of protease by
its cleavage site? i.e. serine protease etc.
(ii) Do you know of any "general" p-nitrophenol protease substrates that
I can use to biochemically characterise the protease? (temperature, pH,
salt dependence etc). If not, what about any "specific" substrates for
other proteases that I could try?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Please reply by e-mail if poss.
