Protease cleavage

  1. Feb 10, 2012 #1
    If an endoprotease is known to cleave "at" a particular residue - for instance "at" S102 - does it cleave N-terminally or C-terminally of S102? In other words, is the residue which the enzyme cleaves "at" retained in the modified protein or lost along with the 'waste'?

    Thanks for any help.
