Probing for actinase activity of protealysin


The ability of protealysin, a thermolysin-like metallopeptidase from Serratia proteamaculans 94, to cleave actin and matrix metalloprotease MMP2 is reported. In globular actin, protealysin and S. proteamaculans 94 cell extracts are shown to hydrolyze the Gly42-Val43 peptide bond within the DNase-binding loop and the Gly63-Ile64 and Thr66-Ile67 peptide bonds… (More)
