Elastase is used in combination with other proteases for protein analysis by mass spectrometry. Elastase, is used in tissue dissociation because elastin is found in highest concentrations in the elastic fibers of connective tissues, elastase is frequently used to dissociate tissues that contain extensive intercellular fiber networks. It is usually used with other enzymes such as collagenase, trypsin, and chymotrypsin, membrane protein solubilization, protein sequence studies.
