Trypsin/Lys-C Mix, Mass Spec Grade, is a mixture of Trypsin Gold, Mass Spectrometry Grade, and rLys-C, Mass Spec Grade. The Trypsin/Lys-C Mix is designed to improve digestion of proteins or protein mixtures in solution.
Using the conventional trypsin digestion protocol (i.e., overnight incubation at nondenaturing conditions), Trypsin/Lys-C Mix improves protein digestion by eliminating the majority of missed cleavages, which occur at prominent quantities in trypsin digests. Trypsin/Lys-C Mix enhances digestion and compensates for the trypsin proteolytic inefficiency at lysine sites (Figure 1).

Replacing trypsin with Trypsin/Lys-C Mix in this conventional protocol leads to multiple benefits for protein analysis including more accurate mass spectrometry-based protein quantitation and improved protein mass spectrometry analytical reproducibility. Trypsin/Lys-C Mix also provides greater tolerance to trypsin-inhibiting agents, assuring efficient digestion of proteins for which protein purification is limited or not feasible.

Incomplete digestion with trypsin was evident after comparing peptide peak intensities in trypsin and Trypsin/Lys-C Mix digests.
The extract contained a residual amount of methanol and chloroform, which inhibits trypsin, but not Trypsin/Lys-C Mix digestion.
