Grifolisin, a member of the sedolisin family produced by the fungus Grifola frondosa.

The pepstatin-insensitive carboxyl proteinase grifolisin was purified from fruiting bodies of the fungus Grifola frondosa, a maitake mushroom. The enzyme had an optimum pH of 3.0 for the digestion of hemoglobin and 2.8 for milk casein digestion. Its molecular mass was determined to be 43kDa by SDS-PAGE and 40kDa by gel chromatography on Superose 12, and its… CONTINUE READING
