High concentration of carboxypeptidase M in lungs: presence of the enzyme in alveolar type I cells.

Abstract

The presence of high concentrations of membrane-bound carboxypeptidase M in human, baboon, dog, and rat lung was established by employing a variety of techniques. The activity of the enzyme in the membrane-enriched fractions of human, baboon, dog, and rat lung, measured with fluorescent dansyl substrate (DNS-Ala-Arg), was 198, 261, 484, and 153 nmol/h/mg… (More)
