Accepted name: pycnoporopepsin
Reaction: Similar to pepsin A, but narrower, cleaving only three bonds in the B chain of insulin: Ala14┼Leu, Tyr16┼Leu, and Phe24┼Phe
Other name(s): proteinase Ia; Pycnoporus coccineus aspartic proteinase; Trametes acid proteinase
Comments: From the basidiomycete Pycnoporus sanguineus, formerly known as P. coccineus and Trametes sanguinea. Formerly included in EC
