On the left of the figure, a leucine side chain in the P0 1 position makes contact with the S0 1 pocket in the enzyme. On the right-hand side of the figure, a glutamine side chain in the P0 2 position interacts with a deep pocket in the N-terminal half of the enzyme. The C-terminal residue is a phenylalanine, seen at the top of the figure. It makes contact with a gap in the C-terminal side of the cleft. important impacts on treatment of an increasing number of diseases. It also gave further impetus to the exploding area of X-ray crystallography as a tool to develop important information about binding specificity.

In the crystal structure of free memapsin 2 [21], however, the flap position forms a wider opening that can accommodate the transit of substrate. Whether this structure represents the “open” conformation of the flap or one of its intermediate steps is not clear at the present time. The dimeric retroviral proteases have two flaps, each contributed from a monomer. These flaps must also open to permit the movement of substrates and products. 2 Specificity of Aspartic Proteases of the Pepsin Family The substrate binding clefts of aspartic proteases of the pepsin family accommodate about eight amino acid residues, usually four at each side of the scissile bond.
