ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.21.89

Accepted Name
Signal peptidase I.
Alternative Name(s)
Bacterial leader peptidase I.
Phage-procoat-leader peptidase.
SPase I.
Reaction catalysed
Cleavage of hydrophobic, N-terminal signal or leader sequences from secreted and periplasmic proteins
Comment(s)
  • Unaffected by inhibitors of most serine peptidases, but site-directed mutagenesis implicates a Ser/Lys catalytic dyad in activity.
  • Cleaves a single bond -Ala-|-Ala- in M13 phage procoat protein, producing free signal peptide and coat protein.
  • Eukaryote signal peptidases that may have somewhat different specificity are known from the endoplasmic reticulum membrane and mitochondrial inner membrane.
  • Belongs to peptidase family S26.
  • Formerly EC 3.4.99.36.
