Differences in the hydrolysis of enkephalin congeners by the two domains of angiotensin converting enzyme.

Abstract

The hydrolysis of enkephalin (Enk) congeners by the isolated N- (N-ACE) and C-domain of angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE) and by the two-domain somatic ACE was investigated. Both Leu5- and Met5-Enk were cleaved faster by the C-domain than by N-ACE; rates with somatic ACE were 1600 and 2500 nmol/min/nmol enzyme with both active sites being involved… (More)
