The BPPs can be recognized by their typical pyroglutamyl proline-rich oligopeptide sequences presenting invariably(More)
Neutral thiol-activated peptidases present in the pH 5-soluble fraction of rabbit brain (separated by step-elution chromatography on diethylaminoethyl cellulose) were screened for the hydrolysis of bradykinin. Lys-bradykinin, Met-Lys-bradykinin, angiotensin I, angiotensin II, substance P, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH), and neurotensin by(More)
