Accepted name: physarolisin
Reaction: Milk clotting activity. Preferential cleavage of Gly8┼Ser in B chain of insulin most rapidly, followed by Leu11┼Val, Cys(SO3H)19┼Gly and Phe24┼Phe. No action on Ac-Phe-Tyr(I)2.
Other name(s): Dictyostelium discoideum aspartic proteinase; Dictyostelium discoideum aspartic proteinase E; Physarum flavicomum aspartic proteinase; Physarum polycephalum acid proteinase; Physarum aspartic proteinase; physaropepsin
Comments: Belongs in peptidase family S53. From the slime mold Physarum polycephalum. Is not inhibited by pepstatin, but is blocked by methyl 2-diazoacetamidohexanoate. Closely similar enzymes are found in Dictyostelium discoideum and P. flavicomum. Formerly included in EC
