Zinc-Manganese-Leucine Aminopeptidase Definition


Zinc-Manganese-Leucine Aminopeptidase:

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. EC
