Prospective evaluation of aminopeptidase activities in plasma and peripheral organs of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.

Abstract

The cleavage of peptides by aminopeptidase enzyme types could be among the mechanisms related to certain disruptions on mediator and modulatory functions in diabetes mellitus. In order to examine this hypothesis, we measured representative aminopeptidase activities in tissues of peripheral organs of control and streptozotocin-diabetic rats. None of the… (More)
