  • The number of known proteases is increasing at a tremendous rate as a consequence of genome sequencing projects. Although one can guess at the functions of these novel enzymes by considering sequence homology to known proteases, there is a need for new tools to rapidly provide functional information on large numbers of proteins. We describe a method for determining the cleavage site specificity of proteolytic enzymes that involves pooled sequencing of peptide library mixtures. The method was… CONTINUE READING
