Scientific Background :TEV Protease is a highly sequence specific cystine protease originating from the Tobacco Etch Virus (1). The optimum recognition site for this enzyme is the sequence ENLYFQ(G/S) and cleavage occurs between the Gln and Gly/Ser residues (2,3). It is frequently used in affinity purification of proteins to remove affinity tags from recombinant proteins.
