The specificity of thermitase (EC 3.4.21.14), a microbial thermostable serine proteinase fromThermoactinomyces vulgaris, with several oligo- and polypeptide substrates was investigated. Preferred hydrolysis of peptide bonds with a hydrophobic amino acid at the carboxylic site was observed. The proved carboxypeptidolytic splitting of Leu5-enkephalin and… CONTINUE READING
