Achromobacter protease I (API), a lysine-specific serine protease, exhibits an order of magnitude higher activity than bovine trypsin, while its optimum pH is in the alkaline region at approximately pH 9. Two single point mutants have previously been reported to improve the optimum pH range; determination of the tertiary structure of API mutants would help in understanding these mechanisms.
