procollagen C-endopeptidase
pro·col·la·gen C-en·do·pep·ti·dase (pro-kolґə-jən en″do-pepґtĭ-dās) [EC 3.4.24.19] an extracellular endopeptidase that catalyzes the cleavage of the C-terminal extension from procollagen, a step in the synthesis of collagen fibers. The enzyme does not require the procollagen substrate to be an intact trimer.
