Given that aminopeptidase A is primarily responsible for cleaving aspartic acid and converting angiotensin II to angiotensin III, the purpose of the present study was to evaluate the activity of aminopeptidase A by determination of glutamate aminopeptidase activity (GluAP) and aspartate aminopeptidase activity (AspAP) (reported respectively as aminopeptidase A and angiotensinase A activities) in human serum during development and ageing, in an apparently healthy population of 139 male and 148… CONTINUE READING
