Accepted name: peptidyl-Asp metalloendopeptidase
Reaction: Cleavage of Xaa┼Asp, Xaa┼Glu and Xaa┼cysteic acid bonds
Other name(s): endoproteinase Asp-N; peptidyl-Asp metalloproteinase
Comments: A metalloenzyme isolated from Pseudomonas fragi. Useful in protein sequencing applications because of its limited specificity. In peptidase family M72.
