Accepted name: mitochondrial intermediate peptidase
Reaction: Release of an N-terminal octapeptide as second stage of processing of some proteins imported into the mitochondrion
Other name(s): mitochondrial intermediate precursor-processing proteinase; MIP
Comments: A homologue of thimet oligopeptidase. Natural substrates are precursor proteins that have already been processed by mitochondrial processing peptidase. In peptidase family M3 (thimet oligopeptidase family)
