Abstract

Understanding of the detailed catalytic mechanism of porcine pepsin requires knowledge of the three-dimensional structure of its active site. Currently, the results of x-ray crystallographic studies of this enzyme are still preliminary (1,2). The study of specificity and mechanism is, therefore, particularly useful in formulating the interpretation of the catalytic functions of the structural features in the crystallographic models.
