EC 126.96.36.199 - Neurolysin
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- Preferential cleavage in neurotensin: Pro10┼Tyr.
No absolute requirement for a prolyl bond: the enzyme acts on some peptides, such as dynorphin 1-8, that do not contain proline, and does not act on some others that do. In peptidase family M3 (thimet oligopeptidase family).
