Purification and characterization of dipeptidyl peptidase IV-like enzymes from bovine testes.

Abstract

Until now, only recombinant forms of dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP) 8 and 9 have been characterized. We purified non DPPII-non DPPIV enzymes from a natural source. A first DPP8/9-like enzyme was enriched 1160-fold from bovine testes and identified as 'DPP9-like enzyme' by using an anti-DPP9 antibody. A second 576-fold enriched preparation ('DPP enriched peak 3… (More)
