EC 3.4.14.5

Accepted name: dipeptidyl-peptidase IV

Reaction: Release of an N-terminal dipeptide, Xaa-YaaZaa-, from a polypeptide, preferentially when Yaa is Pro, provided Zaa is neither Pro nor hydroxyproline

Other names: dipeptidyl aminopeptidase IV; Xaa-Pro-dipeptidyl-aminopeptidase; Gly-Pro naphthylamidase; postproline dipeptidyl aminopeptidase IV; lymphocyte antigen CD26; glycoprotein GP110; dipeptidyl peptidase IV; glycylproline aminopeptidase; glycylproline aminopeptidase; X-prolyl dipeptidyl aminopeptidase; pep X; leukocyte antigen CD26; glycylprolyl dipeptidylaminopeptidase; dipeptidyl-peptide hydrolase; glycylprolyl aminopeptidase; dipeptidyl-aminopeptidase IV; DPP IV/CD26; amino acyl-prolyl dipeptidyl aminopeptidase; T cell triggering molecule Tp103; X-PDAP

Comments: A homodimer. An integral protein of the plasma membrane of lymphocytes and other mammalian cells, in peptidase family S9 (prolyl oligopeptidase family). The reaction is similar to that of the unrelated EC 3.4.14.11 Xaa-Pro dipeptidyl-peptidase of lactococci
