Achromopeptidase is an extracellular protease isolated from the bacteria Achromobacter lyticus. It is a highly active enzyme with a broad specificity against Staphylococci, Streptococci, Clostridii, Leuconostoc, and some Gram-negative bacteria. Achromopeptidase is useful for the lysis of Gram-positive bacteria with resistance to lysozyme and is commonly used for the primary fragmentation of polypeptides in protein sequence analysis. It is specific to lysyl bonds, including Lys-Pro.
