Aminopeptidase-B in the rat testes: isolation, functional properties and cellular localization in the seminiferous tubules.


An aminopeptidase of the B-type, with an apparent M(r) 72,000 and pI = 4.9, was isolated from rat testes and characterized. The enzyme was able to remove only Arg and/or Lys residues from L-amino acid beta-naphthylamide derivatives and from the N-terminus of several peptides. No cleavage occurred in the case of Arg-Pro bonds as found in bradykinin and… (More)
