EC 3.4.24.61     
Accepted name: nardilysin
Reaction: Hydrolysis of polypeptides, preferably at -Xaa┼Arg-Lys-, and less commonly at -Arg┼Arg-Xaa-, in which Xaa is not Arg or Lys
Other name(s): N-arginine dibasic convertase; NRD-convertase
Comments: Enzyme of 133 kDa from rat brain and testis. A homologue of pitrilysin containing the His-Phe-Leu-Glu-His zinc-binding sequence, and a highly acidic stretch of 71 residues. Unusually for a metalloendopeptidase, inhibited by bestatin, amastatin and N-ethylmaleimide. In peptidase family M16 (pitrilysin family)
