Material and Methods Na-Cbz-Glycyl-DL-Prolyl-fi-Naphthylamide. Na-Cbz-Gly-DL-Pro (2g) and 2-naphthylamine (1 g) were dissolved in 50 ml of tetrahydrofuran at -10 ~ C. To this solution was added 1.35 g N,Nl-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide and with mechanical stirring the solution was brought slowly to 25 o C with stirring continued for 16 hours. The precipitated urea was removed by filtration and the filtrate evaporated to dryness in vacuo. The amorphous residue was extracted with dichloromethane and… Expand

TLDR
Glycyl-proline naphthylamidase (Gly-Pro-Nase) was discovered in peripheral blood lymphocytes of healthy adult humans and in mini-pigs and it was demonstrated neither in the blastically transformed lymphocytes (after phytohemagglutinine stimulation) nor in epithelial lymphocyte of the human jejunum.

A sulphydryl-dependent and chloride-activated peptidase (cathepsin C) that hydrolyses alanyl-alanine naphthylamide
SynopsisA peptidase, capable of hydrolysing naphthylamides of alanyl-alanine, leucyl-leucine and glycyl-phenylalanine, as well as amides of glycyl-phenylalanine and glycyl-tyrosine, with a dipeptideExpand
Studies on dipeptidyl(amino)peptidase IV (glycyl-proline naphthylamidase)

TLDR
The contribution of DAP IV activity of the capillary endothelium to the total DAPIV activity in a particular organ is decisive in the myocardium, striated muscle, aorta and lung; it represents about one half of the total activity in spleen and pancreas and is less expressed in the liver, intestine and particularly in the kidney.

Periplasmic form of dipeptidyl aminopeptidase IV from Pseudoxanthomonas mexicana WO24: purification, kinetic characterization, crystallization and X-ray crystallographic analysis.
TLDR
Initial phases were determined by the molecular-replacement method using Stenotrophomonas maltophilia DPP IV (PDB entry 2ecf) as a template and refinement of the structure is in progress. Expand
Peptidasen II. Zur Lokalisation der Dipeptidylpeptidase IV (DPP IV). Histochemische und biochemische Untersuchung
TLDR
The results obtained for DPP IV suggest a peptidylpeptidase which seems to be involved in other metabolic processes beside the degradation of collagen, and confirms the species- and organ-dependent differences revealed by histochemistry. Expand
Development of a fluorogenic small substrate for dipeptidyl peptidase-4
TLDR
Results suggest that H-Gly-Pro-1 could be used as fluorophore in OFF–ON-type fluorogenic probes. Expand
Synthesis, kinetic evaluation, and utilization of a biotinylated dipeptide proline diphenyl phosphonate for the disclosure of dipeptidyl peptidase IV-like serine proteases.
TLDR
The dipeptide-derived proline diphenyl phosphonate NH(2)-Glu(biotinyl-PEG)-Pro(P)(OPh)(2) has been prepared by a combination of classical solution- and solid-phase methodologies and has been shown to be an irreversible inhibitor of porcine DPP-IV, exhibiting an over all second-order rate constant. Expand
The purification and characterisation of novel dipeptidyl peptidase IV-like activity from bovine serum.
TLDR
It is concluded that bovine serum DP IV-like activity share many biochemical properties with DPIV and DPIV-like enzymes but not exclusively, suggesting that the purified peptidase may play an important novel role in bioactive oligopeptide degradation. Expand
Review The prolyl oligopeptidase family
TLDR
The recent crystal structure deter- mination of prolyl oligopeptidase has shown that the enzyme contains a peptidase domain with an a/b hydrolase fold, and its catalytic triad is covered by the central tunnel of an unusual seven-bladed b-propeller. Expand
The evolution of proteinase substrates with special reference to dipeptidylpeptidase IV
SummaryThe design and development of specific substrates for proteolytic enzymes is reviewed. Particular attention is given to substrates containing the leaving groups 4-methoxy-2-naphthylamide (MNA)Expand
