ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.24.84

Accepted Name
Ste24 endopeptidase.
Alternative Name(s)
CAAX prenyl protease 1.
Prenyl protein-specific endoprotease 1.
Reaction catalysed
The peptide bond hydrolyzed can be designated -C-|-A-A-X in which C is an S-isoprenylated cysteine residue, A is usually aliphatic and X is the C-terminal residue of the substrate protein, and may be any of several amino acids
Cofactor(s)
Zinc.
Comment(s)
  • One of two enzymes that can catalyze this processing step for mating a-factor in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
  • Subsequently, the S-isoprenylated cysteine residue that forms the new C-terminus is methyl-esterified and forms a hydrophobic membrane- anchor.
  • Belongs to peptidase family M48.
