Accepted name: aureolysin
Reaction: Cleavage of insulin B chain with specificity similar to that of thermolysin, preferring hydrophobic P1′ residue. Activates the glutamyl endopeptidase (EC of Staphylococcus aureus
Other name(s): Staphylococcus aureus neutral proteinase; Staphylococcus aureus neutral protease
Comments: A metalloenzyme from S. aureus earlier confused with staphylokinase (a non-enzymic activator of plasminogen).
