Cysteine Endopeptidases definition: ENDOPEPTIDASES which have a cysteine involved in the catalytic process. This group of enzymes is inactivated by CYSTEINE PROTEINASE INHIBITORS such as CYSTATINS and SULFHYDRYL REAGENTS.
Endopeptidases definition: A subclass of PEPTIDE HYDROLASES that catalyze the internal cleavage of PEPTIDES or PROTEINS.
endopeptidase definition: nonEC category which corresponds to EC 3.4.21, EC 3.4.22, EC 3.4.23, EC 3.4.24, and EC 3.4.99.
Endopeptidase definition: A class of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of peptide bonds in the interior of a polypeptide chain or protein molecule.
Serine Endopeptidases definition: Any member of the group of ENDOPEPTIDASES containing at the active site a serine residue involved in catalysis.
Serine Protease definition: Proteases that have a serine residue in the active center of the enzyme. These enzymes catalyze the hydrolysis of covalent peptidic bonds by serine nucleophilic attack. Serine proteases participate in a wide range of functions in the body, including blood clotting, inflammation, and digestion.
Aspartic Acid Endopeptidases definition: A sub-subclass of endopeptidases that depend on an ASPARTIC ACID residue for their activity.
ATP-Dependent Endopeptidases definition: Endoproteases that contain proteolytic core domains and ATPase-containing regulatory domains.
