EC Stratum corneum chymotryptic enzyme. [1 PDB entries]    

Reaction: Cleavage of proteins with aromatic side chains in the P1 position.
Other name(s): Kallikrein 7. Scce. Serine protease 6.
Comments: This enzyme has wide substrate specificity, being able to degrade heat-denatured bovine casein and the alpha-chain of native human fibrinogen. It cleaves the B chain of bovine insulin at 6-Leu-|-Cya-7 (cysteic acid), 16-Tyr-|-Leu-17, 25-Phe-|-Tyr-26 and 26-Tyr-|-Thr-27. It is thought to play a role in the desquamation (skin-shedding) of the outer layer of skin, the stratum corneum, by degrading intercellular cohesive structures. Belongs to peptidase family S1A.
