CRYSTAL STRUCTURES OF RECOMBINANT RAT CATHEPSIN B AND A CATHEPSIN B-INHIBITOR COMPLEX: IMPLICATIONS FOR STRUCTURE-BASED INHIBITOR DESIGN

Released:

Function and Biology Details

Reaction catalysed:
Hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity for peptide bonds. Preferentially cleaves -Arg-Arg-|-Xaa bonds in small molecule substrates (thus differing from cathepsin L). In addition to being an endopeptidase, shows peptidyl-dipeptidase activity, liberating C-terminal dipeptides.
