Accepted name: scytalidopepsin A
Reaction: Hydrolysis of proteins with specificity similar to that of pepsin A, but also cleaves Cys(SO3H)7┼Gly and Leu17┼Val in the B chain of insulin
Other name(s): Scytalidium aspartic proteinase A; Scytalidium lignicolum aspartic proteinase; Scytalidium lignicolum aspartic proteinase A-2; Scytalidium lignicolum aspartic proteinase A-I; Scytalidium lignicolum aspartic proteinase C; Scytalidium lignicolum carboxyl proteinase; Scytalidium lignicolum acid proteinase
Comments: Isolated from the imperfect fungus Scytalidium lignicolum. Not inhibited by pepstatin-Ac, methyl 2-diazoacetamidohexanoate or 1,2-epoxy-3-(p-nitrophenyl)propane. A related enzyme from the same organism, proteinase C, is also insensitive to these inhibitors and has Mr = 406,000 [3]
