Proteolysis-PrEP (Lysozyme): Effect of Pressure Cycling on Lysozyme Activity
Pressure cycling technology (PCT) has been proven to accelerate enzymatic protein digestion. For example, the effect of PCT on trypsin digestion has been demonstrated by several laboratories. They report that digestion times can be reduced from hours to minutes [1, 2]. Not only has PCT been shown to accelerate and improve protein digestion in solution, but it also can accelerate the digestion by trypsin of proteins in polyacrylamide gel slices . Additionally, the enhancing effect of PCT on the activity of several other enzymes, including Proteinase K, PNGase F, and Lys-C, has been reported [4, 5, 6].
