Summary for Patent: 4,543,329
Title: Process for the specific cleavage of protein sequences from proteins
Abstract:A process for cleavage of a protein (a) sequence from a protein containing the tetrapeptide sequence Pro-Xyz-Gly-Pro, wherein Xyz can be any desired amino acid, and reacting the protein with a collagenase whereby the Xyz-Gly bond is selectively cleaved, thereby producing a protein with the sequence Gly-Pro at its N-terminal end; or (b) containing the sequence Met-Pro; and subsequently selectively cleaving the glycine or methionine residue from the N-terminal end of the product protein with an aminoacylproline aminopeptidase and selectively cleaving the proline residue therefrom with a proline aminopeptidase; or subsequently selectively cleaving the Gly-Pro or Met-Pro residue from the N-terminal end of the produced protein using a postproline dipeptidylaminopeptidase. In a special embodiment, the protein which is split contains the sequence -Zxy-Uvw-Pro- on the carboxy end of the sequence Pro-Xyz-Gly-Pro, wherein Zxy and Uvw are independently any natural amino acid in the genetic code except Pro, whereby after the collagenase reaction, there is produced a protein with the sequence Gly-Pro-Zxy-Uvw-Pro at the N-terminal end. This is split by subsequently selectively cleaving the Pro-Zxy-bond by treating the protein with postproline dipeptidylaminopeptidase (PPDA), thereby producing protein having the sequence Zxy-Uvw-Pro at its N-terminal end, followed by cleaving the Zxy acid from the resultant protein by treating the latter with leucine aminopeptidase.
