KEGG   ENZYME: 3.4.21.72Help
Entry
EC 3.4.21.72                Enzyme                                 

Name
IgA-specific serine endopeptidase;
IgA protease;
IgA proteinase;
IgA-specific proteinase;
immunoglobulin A protease;
immunoglobulin A proteinase
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on peptide bonds (peptidases);
Serine endopeptidases
BRITE hierarchy
Reaction(IUBMB)
Cleavage of immunoglobulin A molecules at certain Pro! bonds in the hinge region. No small molecule substrates are known
Comment
Species variants differing slightly in specificity are secreted by Gram-negative bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Haemophilus influenzae. Type example of peptidase family S6. Some other bacterial endopeptidases with similar specificity are of metallo- type (see EC 3.4.24.13, IgA-specific metalloendopeptidase)
History
EC 3.4.21.72 created 1992
Orthology
K01347
