Product nameProtease Inhibitor Cocktail EDTA Free
Protease Inhibitor Cocktail EDTA Free (ab270055) protects protein extracts from aminopeptidases, metalloproteases, and serine, cysteine, and aspartic acid proteases. It is supplied as a 100X stock solution of protease inhibitors dissolved in DMSO. Ab270055 is a general-purpose reagent suitable for protease inhibition during protein extraction from mammalian tissues and cells, yeast and fungal cells, and bacteria.
ab270055 does not contain the chelating agent EDTA and therefore its effectiveness against metalloproteases is limited by comparison to protease preparations that do contain EDTA. It is compatible with techniques which require the absence of EDTA, such as isoelectric focusing and metal affinity column separations. For other applications, use ab271306, which includes EDTA.
This product is manufactured by Expedeon, an Abcam company. It was previously called Proteoloc™ Protease Inhibitor Cocktail EDTA Free. Expedeon product code 42516 is the same as the 3 mL size of this product, 42517 is the same as the 30 mL size, and 44214 is the same as the 10 mL size.
