The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Mass balance status: Undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: pseudolysin
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: Pseudomonas elastase, Pseudomonas aeruginosa neutral metalloproteinase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of proteins including elastin, collagen types III and IV, fibronectin and immunoglobulin A, generally with bulky hydrophobic group at P1'. Insulin B chain cleavage pattern identical to that of thermolysin, but specificity differs in other respects.
The protein belongs to the Ipeptidase family M4. It has been characterized rrom the pathogenic bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Legionella pneumophila, and causes tissue damage [Nishino80, Dreyfus86, Bever88, Black90].
