ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
IgA-specific serine endopeptidase.
Alternative Name(s)
IgA protease.
immunoglobulin A1 protease.
Reaction catalysed
Cleavage of immunoglobulin A molecules at certain Pro-|-Xaa bonds in the hinge region. No small molecule substrates are known
  • Species variants differing slightly in specificity are secreted by Gram-negative bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Haemophilus influenzae.
