Rennin is the main milk-clotting enzyme in the fourth stomach of young calves. This enzyme has been crystallized and studied by several workers such as Hankinson, Berridee, and Ernstrom, and found to be heterogeneous. It is a proteolytic enzyme, which exhibits its maximum activity on hemoglobin, bovine serum albumin, and casein in the region of pH 3.4 - 4.0. It has a specificity similar to, but narrower than, that of pepsin.
