Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV) has beenimplicated in the control of cell growth anddifferentiation. A rat hepatocyte membrane antigenrecognized by a monoclonal antibody (HAM.4) has now beenshown to be identical to DPPIV by immunoblot analysisand amino acid sequencing. The amounts of DPPIVimmunoreactive protein and enzymatic activity in serumincreased in a… CONTINUE READING
