Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV/CD26; EC. 3.4.14.5), a widely distributed multifunctional type II plasma membrane glycoprotein, is involved in different biological processes. It is a serine protease associated with uptake and transmembrane transport of proline-containing peptides as well as with processing of physiological active peptides1. As an exopeptidase it cleaves N -terminal dipeptides after proline or alanine residues. Furthermore, an endopeptidase activity of DPPIV has also been… CONTINUE READING
