  Domain Name: Peptidase_C13
Peptidase C13 family. Members of this family are asparaginyl peptidases. The blood fluke parasite Schistosoma mansoni has at least five Clan CA cysteine peptidases in its digestive tract including cathepsins B (2 isoforms), C, F and L. All have been recombinantly expressed as active enzymes, albeit in various stages of activation. In addition, a Clan CD peptidase, termed asparaginyl endopeptidase or 'legumain' has been identified. This has formerly been characterized as a 'haemoglobinase', but this term is probably incorrect. Two cDNAs have been described for Schistosoma mansoni legumain; one encodes an active enzyme whereas the active site cysteine residue encoded by the second cDNA is substituted by an asparagine residue. Both forms have been recombinantly expressed.
