Accepted name: endothiapepsin
Reaction: Hydrolysis of proteins with specificity similar to that of pepsin A; prefers hydrophobic residues at P1 and P1′, but does not cleave Ala14-Leu in the B chain of insulin or Z-Glu-Tyr. Clots milk
Other name(s): Endothia aspartic proteinase; Endothia acid proteinase; Endothia parasitica acid proteinase; Endothia parasitica aspartic proteinase
Comments: From the ascomycete Endothia parasitica. In peptidase family A1 (pepsin A family).
