3.4.22.40: bleomycin hydrolase

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

Reaction

Inactivates bleomycin B2 (a cytotoxic glycometallopeptide) by hydrolysis of a carboxyamide bond of beta-aminoalanine, but also shows general aminopeptidase activity. The specificity varies somewhat with source, but amino acid arylamides of Met, Leu and Ala are preferred =
