3.4.23.20: Penicillopepsin

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

Reaction

Hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity similar to that of pepsin A, preferring hydrophobic residues at P1 and P1', but also cleaving Gly20-/-Glu in the B chain of insulin. Clots milk, and activates trypsinogen =
