Crotalus atrox metalloendopeptidase c;
hemorrhagic toxin c and d
Acting on peptide bonds (peptidases);
Cleavage of His5!Leu, His10!Leu, Ala14!Leu, Tyr16!Leu and Gly23!Phe bonds in B chain of insulin. With small molecule substrates prefers hydrophobic residue at P2' and small residue such as Ala, Gly at P1
A 24 kDa hemorrhagic endopeptidase from the venom of the western diamondback rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox) that digests type IV collagen, and exists as two forms, c and d. Phosphoramidon inhibits in the 0.1 mM range. In peptidase family M12 (astacin family). Hemorrhagic toxin-2 of C. ruber ruber has the same Mr and specificity and is a homologue [4,6].
