Peptidyl-Dipeptidase A MeSH Descriptor Data 2023

MeSH Heading
Peptidyl-Dipeptidase A
Tree Number(s)
Unique ID
RDF Unique Identifier
Scope Note
A peptidyl-dipeptidase that catalyzes the release of a C-terminal dipeptide, oligopeptide-|-Xaa-Yaa, when Xaa is not Pro, and Yaa is neither Asp nor Glu. Thus, conversion of ANGIOTENSIN I to ANGIOTENSIN II, with increase in vasoconstrictor activity, but no action on angiotensin II. It is also able to inactivate BRADYKININ, a potent vasodilator; and has a glycosidase activity which releases GPI-anchored proteins from the membrane by cleaving the mannose linkage in the GPI moiety. (From April 15, 2020).
