Extracellular serine protease produced by Bacillus spp.
Subtilisin is a non-specific protease (a protein-digesting enzyme) initially obtained from Bacillus subtilis. Subtilisins belong to subtilases, a group of serine proteases that - like all serine proteases - initiate the nucleophilic attack on the peptide (amide) bond through a serine residue at the active site. Subtilisins typically have molecular...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subtilisin

Type: Term Pronunciation: sŭb-til′ĭ′sin Definitions: 1. A proteinase produced by Bacillus subtilis and other species, similar to the serine proteinases of other molds and bacteria; it catalyzes the hydrolysis of a few specific peptide bonds in certain proteins, converting chymotrypsinogen to chymotrypsin and ovalbumin to plaka...Found on http://www.medilexicon.com/medicaldictionary.php?t=86129
