Accepted name: acrocylindropepsin
Reaction: Preference for hydrophobic residues at P1 and P1′. Action on the B chain of insulin is generally similar to that of pepsin A, but it also cleaves Leu6┼Cys(SO3H), Glu21┼Arg and Asn3┼Gln, although not Gln4-His
Other name(s): Acrocylindrium proteinase; Acrocylindrium acid proteinase
Comments: From the imperfect fungus Acrocylindrium sp. Has a very low pH optimum on casein of 2.0. In peptidase family A1 (pepsin A family).
