ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.21.110

Accepted Name
C5a peptidase.
Alternative Name(s)
SCP.
Streptococcal C5a peptidase.
Reaction catalysed
The primary cleavage site is at 67-His-|-Lys-68 in human C5a with a minor secondary cleavage site at 58-Ala-|-Ser-59
Comment(s)
  • Surface-associated subtilisin-like serine peptidase with very specific substrate specificity.
  • Virulent strains of streptococci, including Streptococcus pyogenes, can evade human detection and phagocytosis by destroying the complement chemotaxin C5a.
  • Cleavage of human C5a by this enzyme reduces the ability of C5a to bind receptors on the surface of polymorphonuclear neutrophil leukocytes (PMNLs) and thereby abolishes its chemotactic properties.
  • Belongs to peptidase family S8A.
