Accepted name: Xaa-Pro dipeptidyl-peptidase
Reaction: Hydrolyses Xaa-Pro┼ bonds to release unblocked, N-terminal dipeptides from substrates including Ala-Pro┼p-nitroanilide and (sequentially) Tyr-Pro┼Phe-Pro┼Gly-Pro┼Ile
Other name(s): X-prolyl dipeptidyl aminopeptidase; PepX; X-prolyl dipeptidyl peptidase; X-Pro dipeptidyl-peptidase
Comments: The intracellular enzyme from Lactococcus lactis (190-kDa) is the type example of peptidase family S15. The reaction is similar to that catalysed by dipeptidyl-peptidase IV of animals
