Enzyme Commission Primary Name: mucorpepsin
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: Mucor rennin, Mucor acid proteinase, Mucor acid protease, Mucor miehei aspartic proteinase, Mucor miehei aspartic protease, Mucor aspartic proteinase, Mucor pusillus emporase, Fromase 100, Mucor pusillus rennin, Fromase 46TL, Mucor miehei rennin
Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme catalyzes hydrolysis of proteins, favouring hydrophobic residues at P1 and P1'. Clots milk. Does not accept Lys at P1, and hence does not activate trypsinogen.
Isolated from the zygomycete fungi Mucor pusillus and M. miehei. The two species variants show 83% sequence identity and are immunologically crossreactive. In peptidase family A1 (pepsin A family). Formerly included in EC 188.8.131.52
