Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0008237 - metallopeptidase activity

Synonyms: metalloprotease activity, metalloproteinase activity

Definition: Catalysis of the hydrolysis of peptide bonds by a mechanism in which water acts as a nucleophile, one or two metal ions hold the water molecule in place, and charged amino acid side chains are ligands for the metal ions.
