Enteropeptidase, EC 126.96.36.199, Enterokinase, Serine protease 7, ENTK, MGC133046.
Enteropeptidase or enterokinase is an enzymeinvolved in human digestion. It is produced by cells in the duodenum wall, and is secreted from duodenum's glands, the crypts of Lieberk?hn, whenever ingested food enters the duodenum from the stomach. Enteropeptidase has the critical job of turning trypsinogen(a zymogen) to trypsin, indirectly activating a number of pancreaticdigestive enzymes.
Enteropeptidase is a serine proteaseenzyme(EC188.8.131.52). Enteropeptidase is a part of the Chymotrypsin-clan of serine proteases, and is structurally similar to these proteins.
Enterokinase Bovine Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 241 amino acids with a 6 × His at C-terminus and having a molecular mass of 28.0kDa.
