Accepted name: plasminogen activator Pla
Reaction: Converts human Glu-plasminogen to plasmin by cleaving the Arg560┼Val peptide bond that is also hydrolysed by the mammalian u-plasminogen activator and t-plasminogen activator. Also cleaves arginyl bonds in other proteins
Comments: In peptidase family A26. From the bacterium Yersinia pestis that causes plague.
