Do you use only trypsin to digest proteins or can other proteolytic enzymes be used?

If sample is to be “in-solution digested,” we can use any one or combination of commercially available sequencing-grade proteolytic enzymes.  For “in-gel digestion", the repertoire of the proteolytic enzymes becomes slightly more limited.  Note that many high molecular weight enzymes are not as efficient for in-gel digestion as trypsin and chymotrypsin.
