Estimation of relative importance of three enzymes in the inactivation of [Met5]-enkephalin and [Met5]-enkephalin-Arg6 in three isolated preparations by employing the inhibitor specific for each enzyme.

Abstract

The relative importance of three enzymes, amastatin-sensitive aminopeptidase, captopril-sensitive peptidyl dipeptidase A and phosphoramidon-sensitive endopeptidase-24.11, to inactivate two opioid peptides, [Met5]-enkephalin and [Met5]-enkephalin-Arg6, was investigated in three in vitro isolated preparations, guinea-pig ileum, mouse vas deferens and rat vas… (More)
