Biochemical characterization of “LAP,” a polymorphic aminopeptidase from the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis


A genetically variable naphthylamidase enzyme, previously described as “leucine aminopeptidase,” was purified approximately fiftyfold, and its biochemical properties were investigated. The enzyme was renamed “aminopeptidase I.” Substrate affinities demonstrate that it is an α-aminoacyl peptide hydrolase (E.C. 3.4.11.-). Aminopeptidase I had a monomer… (More)
