Accepted name: deuterolysin
Reaction: Preferential cleavage of bonds with hydrophobic residues in P1′, also Asn3┼Gln and Gly8┼Ser bonds in insulin B chain
Other name(s): Penicillium roqueforti protease II; microbial neutral proteinase II; acid metalloproteinase; neutral proteinase II; Penicillium roqueforti metalloproteinase
Comments: Proteolytic activity found in Penicillium roqueforti [4], P. caseicolum [4], Aspergillus sojae [3] and A. oryzae [1,5]. Optimum pH of 5 for digesting various proteins. Strong action on protamine and histones. Insensitive to phosphoramidon. About 20 kDa. A distinct Aspergillus sojae endopeptidase is larger and has a neutral pH optimum. Type example of peptidase family M35. Formerly included in EC
