interstitial collagenase

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


Cleavage of the triple helix of collagen at about three-quarters of the length of the molecule from the N-terminus, at Gly775-/-Ile in the alpha1(I) chain. Cleaves synthetic substrates and alpha-macroglobulins at bonds where P1' is a hydrophobic residue =
