Endopeptidases are enzymes which split peptides and polypeptides into smaller peptides by targetting peptide bonds near the centre of the molecule. They must be contrasted with the exopeptidases: both groups are peptidases.

Endopeptidase examples include:

  • pepsin
  • trypsin
  • chymotrypsin
  • elastase
