Accepted name: neurolysin
Reaction: Preferential cleavage in neurotensin: Pro10┼Tyr
Other name(s): neurotensin endopeptidase; endopeptidase 24.16; endo-oligopeptidase B (proline-endopeptidase)
Comments: No absolute requirement for a prolyl bond: the enzyme acts on some peptides, such as dynorphin 1-8, that do not contain proline, and does not act on some others that do. In peptidase family M3 (thimet oligopeptidase family)
