Assay Procedure
  • Assay Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 0.15 M NaCl, 10 mM CaCl2, 0.05% Brij-35, pH 7.5 (TCNB)
  • Recombinant Human Enteropeptidase/Enterokinase (rhEnterokinase) (Catalog # 1585-SE)
  • Bacterial Thermolysin (Thermolysin) (Catalog # 3097-ZN)
  • 1,10 Phenanthroline (Sigma, Catalog # 320056), 0.6 M stock in DMSO
  • Substrate: thiobenzyl benzyloxycarbonyl-L-lysinate (Z-Lys-SBzl) (Bachem, Catalog # M-1300), 10 mM stock in DMSO
  • 96 well Clear Plate (Costar, Catalog #  92592)

  1. Activate rhEnterokinase with Thermolysin.
    1. Dilute rhEnterokinase to 100 μg/mL in Assay Buffer.
    2. Dilute Thermolysin to 3.16 μg/mL in Assay buffer.
    3. Mix equal volumes of diluted rhEnterokinase and Thermolysin.
    4. Incubate at 37 °C for 30 minutes.
    5. Stop the reaction by adding an equal volume of 20 mM 1,10 Phenanthroline to the reaction tube.
  2. Dilute rhEnterokinase to 0.1 μg/mL in Assay Buffer.
  3. Dilute Substrate to 200 μM in Assay Buffer with 200 μM of DTNB.
  4. Load in a 96 well clear plate 50 μL of the diluted rhEnterokinase. For a Substrate Blank load 50 μL of the Assay Buffer.
  5. Start the reaction by adding 50 μL of the Substrate/DTNB mixture to wells.
  6. Read in kinetic mode for 5 minutes at an absorbance of 405 nm.
  7. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x well volume (L) x 1012 pmol/M
ext. coeff** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank

     **Using the extinction coefficient 13260 M-1cm-1

     ***Using the path correction 0.32 cm

     Note: the output of many spectrophotometers is in mOD

Per Well:
  • rhEnterokinase: 0.005 μg
  • DTNB: 100 μM
  • Substrate: 100 μM

EK initiates activation of pancreatic proteases by converting trypsinogen to trypsin, which in turn activates chymotrypsin, carboxypeptidases and elastases. Located in intestinal brush border, it is a disulfide bond linked dimer of the heavy and light chains, which are derived from the same single-chain precursor. The multidomain‑containing the heavy chain consists of a short cytoplamic tail, a transmembrane, a SEA, a SRCR, a MAM, two CUB and two LDL-receptor class A domains. The light chain contains the catalytic domain of trypsin-like serine proteases. The purified recombinant human EK corresponds to the single-chain form starting at the end of the transmembrane domain.
