Ultrastructural localization and distribution of Nardilysin in mammalian male germ cells.


BACKGROUND NRD convertase, also termed Nardilysin, is a Zn(++) metalloendopeptidase that specifically cleaves the N-terminus of arginine and lysine residues into dibasic moieties. Although this enzyme was found located within the testis, its function in male reproduction is largely unknown. In addition, the precise distribution of this enzyme within germ… (More)
