EC 220.127.116.11 - HycI peptidase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
HycE processing protein
- This enzyme specifically removes a 32-amino acid peptide from the C-terminus of the precursor of the large subunit of hydrogenase 3 [UniProtKB: P16431] in Escherichia coli by cleavage at the C-terminal side of Arg537.
The reaction requires nickel to be bound to the precursor of the large subunit of hydrogenase 3. The endopeptidase uses the metal in the large subunit of [NiFe]-hydrogenases as a recognition motif . In peptidase family A31.
