Abstract.The catalytic action of serine peptidases depends on the interplay of a nucleophile, a general base and an acid. In the classic trypsin and subtilisin families this catalytic triad is composed of serine, histidine and aspartic acid residues and exhibits similar spatial arrangements, but the order of the residues in the amino acid sequence is different. By now several new families have been discovered, in which the nucleophile-base-acid pattern is generally conserved, but the individual… Expand

TLDR
This work describes the known diversity of serine peptidases with respect to structure and function and places particular emphasis on the S1 peptidase family, the trypsins, which underwent the most predominant genetic expansion yielding the enzymes responsible for vital processes in man. Expand
Structure and Catalysis of Acylaminoacyl Peptidase
TLDR
The structure and the kinetics of two mutant enzymes in which the aspartic acid of the catalytic triad was changed to alanine or asparagine are investigated and it is concluded that the two forms are at equilibrium and the substrates bind by the conformational selection mechanism. Expand

The crystal structure of the amidohydrolase VinJ shows a unique hydrophobic tunnel for its interaction with polyketide substrates
TLDR
The crystal structure of VinJ is reported and it is suggested that VinJ represents a new amidohydrolase family that is different from the known α/β hydrolase type serine peptidases. Expand

Studies on the Catalytic Mechanism of a Glutamic Peptidase*
TLDR
The solvent kinetic isotope effects and the proton inventory experiments support a mechanism for the glutamic peptidase SGP that involves the nucleophilic attack of the general base (Glu136) activated water, and establish a fundamental role of the S1 subsite interactions in promoting catalysis.

S46 Peptidases are the First Exopeptidases to be Members of Clan PA
TLDR
The structures of peptide complexes revealed that the α-helical domain covers the active-site cleft and the side chain of Asn330 in the domain forms hydrogen bonds with the N-terminus of the bound peptide, indicating that theα-helicals domain regulates the exopeptidase activity of DAP BII. Expand
The structural basis of beta-peptide-specific cleavage by the serine protease cyanophycinase.
TLDR
Site-directed mutagenesis experiments confirm that cyanophycinase is a serine protease and that Gln101, Asp172, Gln173, Arg178, Arg180 and Arg183, which form a conserved pocket adjacent to the catalytic Ser132, are functionally critical residues. Expand

Peptidase E (PepE) is a nonclassical serine peptidase with a Ser-His-Glu catalytic triad. It is specific for dipeptides with an N-terminal aspartate residue (Asp-X dipeptidase activity). Its homologExpand
The acylaminoacyl peptidase from Aeropyrum pernix K1 thought to be an exopeptidase displays endopeptidase activity.
TLDR
It is found that the substrate-binding site extends beyond the S2 subsite, being capable of binding peptides with a longer N terminus, which is unique among the enzymes of this family of serine peptidases. Expand
