Accepted name: candidapepsin
Reaction: Preferential cleavage at the carboxyl of hydrophobic amino acids, but fails to cleave Leu15-Tyr, Tyr16-Leu and Phe24-Phe of insulin B chain. Activates trypsinogen, and degrades keratin
Other name(s): Candida albicans aspartic proteinase; Candida albicans carboxyl proteinase; Candida albicans secretory acid proteinase; Candida olea acid proteinase; Candida aspartic proteinase; Candida olea aspartic proteinase; Candida albicans aspartic proteinase
Comments: This endopeptidase from the imperfect yeast Candida albicans is inhibited by pepstatin, but not by methyl 2-diazoacetamidohexanoate or 1,2-epoxy-3-(p-nitrophenoxy)propane. In peptidase family A1 (pepsin A family). Formerly included in EC
