ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.22.40

Accepted Name
Bleomycin hydrolase.
Alternative Name(s)
Aminopeptidase C (Lactococcus lactis).
Reaction catalysed
Inactivates bleomycin B2 (a cytotoxic glycometallopeptide) by hydrolysis of a carboxyamide bond of beta-aminoalanine, but also shows general aminopeptidase activity. The specificity varies somewhat with source, but amino acid arylamides of Met, Leu and Ala are preferred
Comment(s)
  • The active sites are on the walls of a central channel through the molecule, and access of substrate molecules to them is obstructed by this and by the C-terminus of each polypeptide chain.
  • Bleomycin can scarcely be the natural substrate, and there are reports of limited endopeptidase activity.
  • Known from bacteria as well as eukaryotic organisms.
  • Hydrolase H from chicken muscle has many similarities to bleomycin hydrolase, but hydrolyzes Ph-CO-Arg-2-naphthylamine as well as aminopeptidase substrates.
  • Belongs to peptidase family C1.
