Localization and characterization of aminopeptidase P in bovine adrenal medulla.

Abstract

Aminopeptidase P (EC 3.4.11.9) is demonstrated for the first time in the cytosolic fraction of chromaffin cells of the bovine adrenal medulla. The enzyme is inhibited by metal chelators and by sulfhydryl-reactive agents, which suggests that both a tightly bound metal ion and a cysteine residue are necessary for enzymatic activity. Aminopeptidase P might be… (More)
