Accepted name: Ulp1 peptidase
Reaction: Hydrolysis of the α-linked peptide bond in the sequence Gly-Gly┼Ala-Thr-Tyr at the C-terminal end of the small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) propeptide, Smt3, leading to the mature form of the protein. A second reaction involves the cleavage of an ε-linked peptide bond between the C-terminal glycine of the mature SUMO and the lysine ε-amino group of the target protein
Other name(s): Smt3-protein conjugate proteinase; Ubl-specific protease 1; Ulp1; Ulp1 endopeptidase; Ulp1 protease
Comments: The enzyme from Saccharomyces cerevisiae can also recognize small ubiquitin-like modifier 1 (SUMO-1) from human as a substrate in both SUMO-processing (α-linked peptide bonds) and SUMO-deconjugation (ε-linked peptide bonds) reactions [1,2,3]. Ulp1 has several functions, including an essential role in chromosomal segregation and progression of the cell cycle through the G2/M phase of the cell cycle. Belongs in peptidase family C48.
