protease

See also peptidase. The term is normally reserved for endopeptidases that have very broad specificity and will cleave most proteins into small fragments. These are usually the digestive enzymes, eg. trypsin, pepsin etc., or enzymes of plant origin (eg. ficin, papain) or bacterial origin (eg. pronase, proteinase K). Proteases are widely used for peptide mapping and for structural studies. See Table P1. ...

Protease

An enzyme which degrades protein into their component amino acids.

Protease

A protease (also termed peptidase or proteinase) is any enzyme that performs proteolysis, that is, begins protein catabolism by hydrolysis of the peptide bonds that link amino acids together in the polypeptide chain forming the protein. Proteases have evolved multiple times, and different classes of protease can perform the same reaction by comple...

protease

Any enzyme that takes part in the breaking down (by hydrolysis) of proteins into peptides and amino acids. Examples of proteases include pepsin and trypsin. Several proteases, acting sequentially, are normally required to break down a protein completely into its constituent amino acids.

protease

General term for an enzyme capable of splitting proteins. Examples include the digestive proteases pepsin, found in the stomach, and trypsin, found in the small intestine. Proteases are also found within cells, for example the proteasome, which removes damaged proteins. The AIDS virus, HIV, carries a gene for its own protease, which is vital for it...
