Enzyme Commission Primary Name: ruberlysin
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: Crotalus ruber metalloendopeptidase II, hemorrhagic toxin II
Taxonomic Range: Metazoa
Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme catalyzes cleavage of His10-|-Leu, Ala14-|-Leu, Tyr16-|-Leu and Gly23-|-Phe bonds in the B chain of insulin; His-|-Pro, Pro-|-Phe, and Trp-|-Ser of angiotensin I; and Gly-|-Phe of Met enkephalin.
A 25 kDa hemorrhagic endopeptidase from the venom of the red rattlesnake (Crotalus ruber ruber) that cleaves fibrinogen. In peptidase family M12 (astacin family).
