Protein Analysis: Asparaginylendopeptidase

Asparaginylendopeptidase specifically cleaves peptide bonds on the carboxyl side of asparagine residues including –Asn-Pro– bonds. The peptide bond cleavage specificity of this enzyme has been validated on many peptides and proteins, with bonds located on N-terminal or N-second position asparagine residues not cleaved with this enzyme. Only those bonds adjacent to C-terminal asparagines residues are cleaved. Because asparagine residues bound to sugar chains are not cleaved, this enzyme can be used for protein analysis of sequenced glycoproteins. Asparaginylendopeptidase is isolated from Jackbean (Canavalia ensiformis).
