ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.23.20

Accepted Name
Penicillopepsin.
Alternative Name(s)
Penicillium janthinellum aspartic protease.
Peptidase A.
Reaction catalysed
Hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity similar to that of pepsin A, preferring hydrophobic residues at P1 and P1', but also cleaving 20-Gly-|-Glu-21 in the B chain of insulin. Clots milk, and activates trypsinogen
Comment(s)
  • From the imperfect fungus Penicillium janthinellum.
  • Closely related enzymes have been isolated from P.roqueforti and P.duponti.
  • Belongs to peptidase family A1.
  • Formerly EC 3.4.4.17, EC 3.4.23.6 and EC 3.4.23.7.
