3.4.23.18: Aspergillopepsin I

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

Reaction

hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity. Generally favours hydrophobic residues in P1 and P1', but also accepts Lys in P1, which leads to activation of trypsinogen. Does not clot milk =
