Technical Data


Recombinant protein


Lysostaphin, an endopeptidase specific for the cell wall peptidoglycan of staphylococci, is an extremely potent anti-staphylococcal agent. Lysostaphin is used as a research and diagnostic tool. Because it lyses staphylococci efficiently, it is widely used when preparing staphylococcal DNA or other cellular components for genetic and biochemical studies and for the preparation of protoplasts for transformation. Preparation and analysis of bacterial DNA has become a powerful tool used by clinical and other microbiologists in epidemiological studies aimed at tracing sources of infection or bacterial contamination.


E. coli


97.5% as determined by RP-HPLC.

Biological Activity

Determined by the decrease in turbidity of a suspension of heat-killed Staphylococcus aureus at pH8.0, 30°C.


The protein was lyophilized without any additives.


At ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.


Lysostaphin although stable at 4°C for 6 months, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Physical Appearance

Sterile filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
