EC 3.4.23.41     
Accepted name: yapsin 1
Reaction: Hydrolyses various precursor proteins with Arg or Lys in P1, and commonly Arg or Lys also in P2. The P3 amino acid is usually non-polar, but otherwise additional basic amino acids are favourable in both non-prime and prime positions
Other name(s): yeast aspartic protease 3; Yap3 gene product (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
Comments: In peptidase family A1 of pepsin, and weakly inhibited by pepstatin. Can partially substitute for kexin in a deficient strain of yeast. The homologous product of the Mkc7 gene (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) has similar catalytic activity and has been termed yapsin 2 [2]
