UniProt functional annotation for P00759

UniProt code: P00759.

Organism: Rattus norvegicus (Rat).
Taxonomy: Eukaryota; Metazoa; Chordata; Craniata; Vertebrata; Euteleostomi; Mammalia; Eutheria; Euarchontoglires; Glires; Rodentia; Sciurognathi; Muroidea; Muridae; Murinae; Rattus.
Function: This protein has both trypsin- and chymotrypsin-like activities, being able to release angiotensin II from angiotensin I or angiotensinogen.
Catalytic activity: Preferential cleavage of Arg-|-Xaa bonds in small molecule substrates. Highly selective action to release kallidin (lysyl-bradykinin) from kininogen involves hydrolysis of Met-|-Xaa or Leu-|-Xaa.
Cofactor: Name=Zn(2+); Xref=ChEBI:CHEBI:29105; Note=Binds 1 zinc ion per subunit.;
Subunit: Monomer.
Tissue specificity: Found in submaxillary gland.
Similarity: Belongs to the peptidase S1 family. Kallikrein subfamily. {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00274}.
Similarity: Contains 1 peptidase S1 domain. {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00274}.
