The peptidases located in the intestinal brush border (BB) probably play a major role in the pathophysiology of protein digestion, but their properties are still incompletely known. In the present study, rabbit BB activities hydrolyzing Phe-Ala(PA), Leu-Gly-Gly (LGG) and Leu-B-naphthylamide (LNA) showed high specific activities and amounted to about 20%, 13% and 5O%, respectively, of the total mucosal activity for the same substrate. PA hydrolase of the BB differed from that of the cytosol on… CONTINUE READING
