EC 3.4.23.32     
Accepted name: scytalidopepsin B
Reaction: Hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity, cleaving Phe24┼Phe, but not Leu15-Tyr and Phe25-Tyr in the B chain of insulin
Other name(s): Scytalidium aspartic proteinase B; Ganoderma lucidum carboxyl proteinase; Ganoderma lucidum aspartic proteinase; Scytalidium lignicolum aspartic proteinase B; SLB
Comments: A second endopeptidase from Scytalidium lignicolum (see scytalidopepsin A) that is insensitive to pepstatin and methyl 2-diazoacetamidohexanoate. 1,2-Epoxy-3-(p-nitrophenoxy)propane reacts with Glu53, which replaces one of the aspartic residues at the active centre. One of the smallest aspartic endopeptidases active as the monomer, with Mr 22,000. Similarly inhibitor-resistant endopeptidases are found in the basidiomycetes Lentinus edodes [1] and Ganoderma lucidum [3], and in Polyporus tulipiferae [4], a second endopeptidase distinct from polyporopepsin, but these are of typical aspartic endopeptidase size, Mr about 36,000. Type example of peptidase family G1.
