ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.21.62

Accepted Name
Subtilisin.
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity for peptide bonds, and a preference for a large uncharged residue in P1. Hydrolyzes peptide amides
Comment(s)
  • Subtilisin is a serine endopeptidase that evolved independently of chymotrypsin.
  • It contains no cysteine residues (although these are found in homologous enzymes).
  • Species variants include subtilisin BPN' (also subtilisin B, subtilopeptidase C, nagarse, nagarse proteinase, subtilisin Novo, bacterial proteinase Novo) and subtilisin Carlsberg (subtilisin A, subtilopeptidase A, alcalase Novo).
  • Similar enzymes are produced by various Bacillus subtilis strains and other Bacillus species.
  • Belongs to peptidase family S8.
  • Formerly EC 3.4.4.16 and EC 3.4.21.14.
