Product Description

Porcine Pepsin A

Porcine Pepsin is an acidic protease. Its inactive zymogen precursor, pepsinogen, is produced in the stomach mucosa. There are several pepsins designated A, B, C, and D. Pepsin A, the major component, has a molecular weight of 35,000 daltons and an optimum pH of approximately 1.0 for substrates such as casein or hemoglobin if the substrate is native protein. Pepsin cleaves proteins preferentially at carboxylic groups of aromatic amino acids such as phenylalanine and tyrosine. It will not cleave at bonds containing valine, alanine or glycine.
