Catalog No. ：
Unknown prokaryotic organism
Expression system ：
Alias: Leaf-branch compost cutinase, LC-cutinase, LCC, PET-digesting enzyme, Poly(ethylene terephthalate) hydrolase, PET hydrolase, PETase
Background: Cutinase that degrades cutin fibers prepared from tomato peels and hydrolyzes various fatty acid monoesters with acyl chain lengths of 2 to 18, with a preference for short-chain substrates (C4 substrate at most). Cannot hydrolyze olive oil (PubMed:22194294). Is also able to degrade polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the most abundant polyester plastic in the world (PubMed:22194294, PubMed:32269349). Can also depolymerize poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL), a synthetic aliphatic biodegradable polyester (PubMed:22194294).
Expression Host: E. coli
Formulation: 50mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 200mM NaCl, 20% glycerol
