Interaction Information:

Comment ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme; peptidyl dipeptidase A; EC, cleaves C-terminal dipeptides from active peptides containing a free C-terminus. The hydrolysis of cholecystokinin-8 [CCK-8; Asp-Tyr(SO3H)-Met-Gly-Trp-Met-Asp-Phe-NH2] and of various gastrin analogues by purified rabbit lung ACE was investigated. Although these peptides are amidated at their C-terminal end, they were metabolized by ACE to several peptide fragments. The initial and major site of hydrolysis was the penultimate peptide bond, which generated a major product, the C-terminal amidated dipeptide Asp-Phe-NH2.
