EC 126.96.36.199 - Mitochondrial intermediate peptidase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
mitochondrial intermediate precursor-processing proteinase
- Release of an N-terminal octapeptide as second stage of processing of some proteins imported into the mitochondrion.
A homologue of thimet oligopeptidase. Natural substrates are precursor proteins that have already been processed by mitochondrial processing peptidase. In peptidase family M3 (thimet oligopeptidase family).
