Accepted Name
Gastricsin.
Alternative Name(s)
Pepsin C.

More restricted specificity than pepsin A, but shows preferential cleavage at Tyr-|-Xaa bonds. High activity on hemoglobin
Comment(s)
  • Formed from progastricsin, apparently in the gastric juice of most vertebrates.
  • In addition to the fundus, progastricsin is also secreted in antrum and proximal duodenum.
  • Seminal plasma contains a zymogen that is immunologically identical with progastricsin.
  • Belongs to peptidase family A1.
