Accepted name: cytosol alanyl aminopeptidase
Reaction: Release of an N-terminal amino acid, preferentially alanine, from a wide range of peptides, amides and arylamides
Other name(s): arylamidase; aminopolypeptidase; thiol-activated aminopeptidase; human liver aminopeptidase; puromycin-sensitive aminopeptidase; soluble alanyl aminopeptidase; cytosol aminopeptidase III; alanine aminopeptidase
Comments: A puromycin-sensitive, Co2+-activated zinc-sialoglycoprotein that is generally cytosolic. Multiple forms are widely distributed in mammalian tissues and body fluids. In peptidase family M1 (membrane alanyl aminopeptidase family)
