Literature Report

IntroductionSedolisins are proteolytic enzymes resembling subtilisin. They are a related family of serine-carboxyl peptidases with a unique Ser-Glu-Asp catalytic triad and require calcium ions to maintain structural integrity.
MechansimSer 287 acts as a nucleophile to attack the scissile bond and form an acyl-enzyme intermediate. Glu 80 interacts with Ser 287, and Asp 84 in turn with Glu 80. A chain of proton donors originates with a bound water molecule interacting with protonated Asp 84. In turn, this residue interacts with protonated Glu 80, which donates a proton to Ser 287. A water molecule accepts protons from Ser 287, and protonated Asp 170 which forms the oxyanion hole stabilising the tetrahedral intermediate.
