BRITE hierarchy
Reaction(IUBMB)
Preferential cleavage in B chain of insulin: Asn3!Gln, Gly13!Ala, Tyr26!Thr
Comment
Isolated from Aspergillus niger var. macrosporus, distinct from proteinase B (see aspergillopepsin I) in specificity and insensitivity to pepstatin. In peptidase family A4 (scytalidopepsin B family). Formerly included in EC 3.4.23.6
