Oviductin (EC 3.4.21.120, oviductal protease) is an enzyme.[1][2][3] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

Preferential cleavage at Gly-Ser-Arg373- of glycoprotein gp43 in Xenopus laevis coelemic egg envelope to yield gp41

This enzyme is also found in the Japanese toad (Bufo japonicus).
