Accepted name: oligopeptidase A
Reaction: Hydrolysis of oligopeptides, with broad specificity. Gly or Ala commonly occur as P1 or P1′ residues, but more distant residues are also important, as is shown by the fact that Z-Gly-Pro-Gly┼Gly-Pro-Ala is cleaved, but not Z-(Gly)5 [4]
Other name(s): 68000-M signalpeptide hydrolase
Comments: Known from Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium. A zinc metallopeptidase, in peptidase family M3 (thimet oligopeptidase family), but differs from thimet oligopeptidase in lack of thiol-activation
