Accepted name: glycyl endopeptidase
Reaction: Preferential cleavage: Gly┼, in proteins and small molecule substrates
Other name(s): papaya peptidase B; papaya proteinase IV; glycine-specific proteinase; chymopapain; Papaya proteinase 4; PPIV; chymopapain M
Comments: From the papaya plant, Carica papaya. Not inhibited by chicken cystatin, unlike most other homologues of papain, but in peptidase family C1 (papain family)
