EC 3.4.21.71     
Accepted name: pancreatic elastase II
Reaction: Preferential cleavage: Leu┼, Met┼ and Phe┼. Hydrolyses elastin
Other name(s): pancreatic elastase 2
Comments: A peptidase of family S1 (trypsin family) formed by activation of proelastase II from mammalian pancreas by trypsin. Usually, only one of the pancreatic elastases (see also EC 3.4.21.36) is expressed in a given species; human pancreatic elastase is of type II
