Accepted name: thermitase
Reaction: Hydrolysis of proteins, including collagen
Other name(s): thermophilic Streptomyces serine proteinase; Thermoactinomyces vulgaris serine proteinase
Comments: A peptidase of family S8 (subtilisin family) from Thermoactinomyces vulgaris containing a single Cys, near the active site His, and inhibited by p-mercuribenzoate. The N-terminal extension of the polypeptide chain relative to subtilisin contributes to Ca2+-binding and the high thermostability. The amino acid composition and properties of the thermostable enzyme from Streptomyces rectus var. proteolyticus (formerly included in EC are closely similar [1,2].
