This is an abbreviated version, for detailed information about Lactocepin, go to the full flat file.


Endopeptidase activity with very broad specificity, although some subsite preferences have been noted, e.g. large hydrophobic residues in the P1 and P4 positions, and Pro in the P2 position. Best known for its action on caseins, although it has been shown to hydrolyse hemoglobin and oxidized insulin B chain =
