Review of protease and phosphatase inhibitor tablets

Protect your protein samples from proteases and phosphatases

By Douglas Hayworth

Proteases and phosphatases serve many metabolic and regulatory functions; however, upon cell lysis, the once compartmentally contained enzymes are capable of mass protein degradation and dephosphorylation.

In this Product Article about inhibiting protease and phosphatase activity, our scientists show how the Thermo Scientific Pierce Protease and Phosphatase Inhibitor Tablets are effective for protecting proteins during cell lysis and protein extraction. We evaluated the effectiveness of the tablet formulations using a variety of substrates and compared performance to tablets from other suppliers. Our formulations protected proteins from protease and phosphatase degradation and performed favorably compared to other commercial preparations.
