3.4.22.B77: Sulfolobus solfataricus peptidase

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

Reaction

Hydrolysis of proteins. Preferentially cleaves -Glu-/- bonds. The enzyme is capable of cleaving Tyr-/- and Phe-/- bonds (chymotrypsin-like activity), Lys-/- and Arg-/- bonds (trypsin-like activity). Asp-/- and Asn-/- bonds are cleaved to a much lower extent. The protease degrades relatively large proteins (50 and 200 kDa) to yield small (below 500 Da) peptides. =
