Serine Protease Collection

Serine Protease Collection Model Demonstration Model

Teaching Points

The Serine Protease Collection (SP) explores the structure and function of protease enzymes, which catalyze the cleavage of peptide bonds, the bonds that join amino acids together to form proteins. The active site of serine proteases contains three critical amino acids: serine, histidine and aspartate. These residues are often referred to as the "catalytic triad."
