Comments FtsH is a processive protease which can dislocate membrane proteins, degrades peptides in both directions, preferentially cleaves hydrophobic and basic residues, and produces fragments of length 10-20 amino acids [PUB_0030]. FtsH uses 8.3 ATP / cleavage at a rate 1.8 cleavage/min [PUB_0031]. Composition Functions as a homohexamer with Zn2+ cofactor [PUB_0030].
