 Synonyms & Historicals
Peptide Hydrolases .
Esteroproteases .
Proteolytic Enzymes .
Peptidases .
Proteinases .
Proteases .
Hydrolases that specifically cleave the peptide bonds found in PROTEINS and PEPTIDES. Examples of sub-subclasses for this group include EXOPEPTIDASES and ENDOPEPTIDASES. .
Leucyl Aminopeptidase .
L-Leucylnaphthylamidase .
Methoxyleucine Aminopeptidase .
Peptidase S .
Zinc-Manganese-Leucine Aminopeptidase .
Aminopeptidase, Cytosol .
Aminopeptidase, Leucine .
Aminopeptidase, Leucyl .
Aminopeptidase, Methoxyleucine .
Aminopeptidase, Zinc-Manganese-Leucine .
Zinc Manganese Leucine Aminopeptidase .
Cytosol Aminopeptidase .
Leucine Aminopeptidase .
Leucyl-beta-Naphthylamidase .
A zinc containing enzyme of the hydrolase class that catalyzes the removal of the N-terminal amino acid from most L-peptides, particularly those with N-terminal leucine residues but not those with N-terminal lysine or arginine residues. This occurs in tissue cell cytosol, with high activity in the duodenum, liver, and kidney. The activity of this enzyme is commonly assayed using a leucine arylamide chromogenic substrate such as leucyl beta-naphthylamide. .
Dipeptidyl-Peptidases and Tripeptidyl-Peptidases .
Dipeptidylpeptide Hydrolases .
Tripeptidyl-Peptidases .
Dipeptidyl Peptidases and Tripeptidyl Peptidases .
Tripeptidyl Peptidases .
Tripeptidyl-Peptidases and Dipeptidyl-Peptidases .
Dipeptidyl Peptidases .
Dipeptidyl Aminopeptidases .
A subclass of exopeptidases that includes enzymes which cleave either two or three AMINO ACIDS from the end of a peptide chain. .
Peptides .
Polypeptides .
Members of the class of compounds composed of AMINO ACIDS joined together by peptide bonds between adjacent amino acids into linear, branched or cyclical structures. OLIGOPEPTIDES are composed of approximately 2-12 amino acids. Polypeptides are composed of approximately 13 or more amino acids. PROTEINS are linear polypeptides that are normally synthesized on RIBOSOMES. .
Methionyl Aminopeptidases .
Methionyl Aminopeptidase .
N-Terminal Methionine-Specific Peptidase .
Peptidase M .
Aminopeptidase, Methionyl .
Aminopeptidases, Methionyl .
Methionine-Specific Peptidase, N-Terminal .
N Terminal Methionine Specific Peptidase .
Aminopeptidases that remove METHIONINE from the amino-terminus of a peptide chain, such as the initiator METHIONINE found on nascent peptide chains. .
