Accepted name: snake venom factor V activator
Reaction: Fully activates human clotting factor V by a single cleavage at the Trp-Tyr-Leu-Arg1545┼Ser-Asn-Asn-Gly bond. Cattle, but not rabbit, factor V is cleaved, and no other proteins of the clotting system are attacked. Esterase activity is observed on Bz-Arg-OEt and Tos-Arg-OMe, and amidase activity on Phe-pipecolyl-Arg-NHPhNO2
Comments: Known from venom of Vipera russelli. Inhibited by di-isopropyl fluorophosphate, unlike the metallopeptidase russellysin (EC that is specific for factor X [1]. In peptidase family S1 (trypsin family) [2].
