A structural model for the glutamate-specific endopeptidase from Streptomyces griseus that explains substrate specificity.

Abstract

We present a model for the three-dimensional structure of the glutamate-specific endopeptidase from Streptomyces griseus based on the crystal structures of other bacterial proteases of the trypsin family. For the first time a structural model is described which attempts to explain the basis of P1 glutamate specificity in serine proteases. Several important… (More)
