Sort info

For researchers in the field of cell biology, CellSystems offers the full range of products for cell isolation and tissue dissociation. With the Worthington Biochemical Corporation enzymes and biochemicals you will maximize the yield of functionally viable, dissociated cells.

Chymotrypsin is a protease which preferentially catalyzes the hydrolysis of peptide bonds

involving the aromatic amino acids tyrosine, phenylalanine, and tryptophan. In addition it acts upon the peptide bonds of leucyl, methionyl, asparagenyl and glutamyl residues, and the amides and esters of susceptible amino acids.

Chymotrypsin is used to a limited extent in tissue dissociation, usually in combination with trypsin and elastase.*
