Enkephalin convertase, an enkephalin-synthesizing carboxypeptidase present in adrenal medulla chromaffin granules, has also been detected in brain and pituitary. To determine whether these three carboxypeptidase activities represent the same enzyme, we purified and characterized enkephalin convertase from adrenal medulla, whole brain, and whole pituitary… CONTINUE READING
