ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.24.36

Accepted Name
Leishmanolysin.
Alternative Name(s)
Glycoprotein gp63.
Promastigote surface endopeptidase.
Reaction catalysed
Preference for hydrophobic residues at P1 and P1' and basic residues at P2' and P3'. A model nonapeptide is cleaved at -Ala-Tyr-|-Leu-Lys-Lys-
Cofactor(s)
Ca(2+); Zn(2+).
Comment(s)
  • A membrane-bound glycoprotein found on the promastigote of various species of Leishmania protozoans.
  • Contains consensus sequence for a zinc binding site; Z-Tyr-Leu-NHOH is a strong inhibitor.
  • The enzyme can activate its proenzyme by cleavage of the 100- Val-|-Val-101 bond.
  • An acidic pH optimum is found with certain protein substrates.
  • Belongs to peptidase family M8.
