Chymotrypsin preferentially catalyzes the hydrolysis of peptide bonds involving L-isomers of tyrosine, phenylalanine, and tryptophan. It also readily acts upon amides and esters of susceptible amino acids. In addition to bonds involving aromatic amino acids, chymotrypsin catalyzes at a high rate the hydrolysis of bonds of leucyl, methionyl, asparaginyl, and glutamyl residues. a-Chymotrypsin is a protein consisting of 241 amino acid residues. The molecule has three peptide chains: an A chain of 13 residues, a B chain of 131 residues, and a C chain of 97 residues. Application Notes a-Chymotrypsin is used for treating pancreatic insufficiency and in traumatology.
