Background: Pepsin (porcine stomach mucosa, E.C., an acid protease catalyzes the hydrolysis(debranching) of guar galactomannan (GG), a co-polymer of mannose and galactose residues therebyshowing its non-specific catalysis towards glycosidic substrates.Results and conclusions: Use of non-specific inhibitors, chemical modification agents and peptide mappingof native and GG – bound pepsin upon proteolytic digestion with Staphylococcus aureus V8 proteaserevealed the involvement of Asp138residue in the catalysis, which was confirmed by computationalmodelling studies.General significance: Here we show a novel mode of catalysis (other than proteolysis) by porcine pepsinwith a different active site residue.
