Accepted name: atrolysin C
Reaction: Cleavage of His5┼Leu, His10┼Leu, Ala14┼Leu, Tyr16┼Leu and Gly23┼Phe bonds in B chain of insulin. With small molecule substrates prefers hydrophobic residue at P2′ and small residue such as Ala, Gly at P1
Other name(s): Crotalus atrox metalloendopeptidase c; hemorrhagic toxin c and d
Comments: A 24 kDa hemorrhagic endopeptidase from the venom of the western diamondback rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox) that digests type IV collagen, and exists as two forms, c and d. Phosphoramidon inhibits in the 0.1 mM range. In peptidase family M12 (astacin family). Hemorrhagic toxin-2 of C. ruber ruber has the same Mr and specificity and is a homologue [4,6].
