Drosophila uses two distinct neuropeptide amidating enzymes, dPAL1 and dPAL2.


Neuropeptide alpha-amidation is a common C-terminal modification of secretory peptides, frequently required for biological activity. In mammals, amidation is catalyzed by the sequential actions of two enzymes [peptidylglycine-alpha-hydroxylating monooxygenase (PHM) and peptidyl-alpha-hydroxyglycine alpha-amidating lyase (PAL)] that are co-synthesized within… (More)
