The reaction mechanism of the Mitochondrial Processing Peptidase enzyme (MPP) was investigated by using hybrid density functional theory. This enzyme removes the NH(2)-terminal targeting signals of nuclear-encoded mitochondrial protein precursors in the mitochondrial matrix. The catalytic process was studied using a model for the active site consisting of 161 atoms locating all the stationary points on the potential energy curve and determining the main energetic, structural, and electronic… Expand
