BRITE hierarchy
Reaction(IUBMB)
Hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity, and of Bz-Arg-OEt > Ac-Tyr-OEt. Does not hydrolyse peptide amides
Comment
A peptidase of family S8 (subtilisin family), not containing cysteine, that is the predominant extracellular alkaline endopeptidase of the mold Aspergillus oryzae. Identical or closely related enzymes are produced by A. flavus and A. sojae [2,3,4]
History
EC 3.4.21.63 created 1992 (EC 3.4.21.14 created 1961 as EC 3.4.4.16, transferred 1972 to EC 3.4.21.14, modified 1986, part incorporated 1992)
