EC 3.4.21.70     
Accepted name: pancreatic endopeptidase E
Reaction: Preferential cleavage: Ala┼. Does not hydrolyse elastin
Other name(s): cholesterol-binding proteinase; proteinase E; cholesterol-binding serine proteinase; pancreatic protease E; pancreatic proteinase E; cholesterol-binding pancreatic proteinase; CBPP; pancreas E proteinase
Comments: A peptidase of family S1 (trypsin family) from pancreatic juice. Unlike elastases, has an acidic pI. Binds cholesterol
