Accepted name: cerevisin
Reaction: Hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity, and of Bz-Arg-OEt Ac-Tyr-OEt. Does not hydrolyse peptide amides
Other name(s): yeast proteinase B; proteinase yscB; baker’s yeast proteinase B; brewer’s yeast proteinase; peptidase β
Comments: From Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast, brewer’s yeast). In peptidase family S8 (subtilisin family), but contains a Cys residue near the active site His, and is inhibited by mercurials. Proteinase ycaB is a similar enzyme from the yeast Candida albicans [3]
