PSMA8 proteasome (prosome macropain) subunit alpha type 8
PSMA8 proteasome subunit alpha type 8
The 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 (By similarity). This may be a testis-specific subunit.
