Proteasome alpha5 subunit
Proteasome component 5
Proteasome subunit alpha type 5
Proteasome subunit alpha type-5
Proteasome subunit zeta
Proteasome zeta chain
FunctionThe proteasome is a multicatalytic proteinase complex which is characterized by its ability to cleave peptides with Arg, Phe, Tyr, Leu, and Glu adjacent to the leaving group at neutral or slightly basic pH. The proteasome has an ATP-dependent proteolytic activity.
Tissue specificityExpressed in fetal brain (at protein level).
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase T1A family.
