Multicatalytic, high-Mr endopeptidase from postmortem human brain.

The main high molecular weight (650K) multicatalytic endopeptidase has been purified from postmortem human cerebral cortex. As in other tissues and species, this enzyme is composed of several subunits of 24-31K and has three distinct catalytic activities, as shown by the hydrolysis of the fluorogenic tripeptide substrates glutaryl-Gly-Gly-Phe-7-amido-4… (More)
