Aminopeptidase

Aminopeptidase

Aminopeptidases catalyze the cleavage of amino acids from the amino terminus of protein or peptide substrates.The majority of aminopeptidases have metallo-enzymes as their catalytic mechanism, but cysteine and serine peptidases are also a part of this class. Aminopeptidases are present in a variety of subcellular organelles, the cytoplasm, and membrane components throughout the animal and plant kingdoms. Numerous aminopeptidases carry out vital cellular tasks. These peptidases include many zinc metalloenzymes, but not all of them, and the transition-state analog bestatin inhibits them all. Some are monomeric, while others are collections of subunits with a relatively high mass (50 kDa).

The corresponding proteolytic regulatory enzymes aspartyl aminopeptidase (ASAP), aminopeptidase A (APA), aminopeptidase B (APB), aminopeptidase N (APN), and insulin-regulated aminopeptidase (IRAP) can be used to analyze the functional roles of the angiotensin peptides of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) cascade. These enzyme processes result in active or inactive angiotensin peptides, which change the ratios between their bioactive forms and control a number of critical processes, including the regulation of cardiovascular functions, the regulation of body water, normal memory consolidation and retrieval, but also cell growth, differentiation, and apoptosis or the inflammatory response.
