Yersinia Pestis Plasminogen Activator Pla (Native)


Function and Biology Details

Reaction catalysed:
Converts human Glu-plasminogen to plasmin by cleaving the 560-Arg-|-Val-561 peptide bond that is also hydrolyzed by the mammalian u-plasminogen activator and t-plasminogen activator. Also cleaves arginyl bonds in other proteins.
