Family: Peptidase_S37

Block: X

Parent Family: No family


This group of serine peptidases belong to MEROPS peptidase family S37 (clan SC). The members of this group of secreted peptidases are restricted to bacteria. In Streptomyces lividans the peptidase removes tripeptides from the N terminus of extracellular proteins (tripeptidyl aminopeptidase,Tap). The peptidase from Streptomyces mobaraensis has been shown to activate the transglutaminase precursor by removal of a leading tri- or tetrapeptide (Umezawa et al., 2004). Calcium ions enhance activity (Zotzel et al., 2003).
