Accepted name: peptidyl-dipeptidase B
Reaction: Release of a C-terminal dipeptide or exceptionally a tripeptide
Other name(s): dipeptidyl carboxyhydrolase; atriopeptin convertase; atrial di-(tri)peptidyl carboxyhydrolase; peptidyldipeptidase B; atrial dipeptidyl carboxyhydrolase; atrial peptide convertase
Comments: A membrane-bound, zinc metallopeptidase located in mammalian atrial, but not ventricular, myocytes. Although it is capable of converting the 126-residue atriopeptin III directly to atriopeptin I by releasing a C-terminal tripeptide Phe-Arg-Tyr, it is generally restricted to the release of dipeptides. In contrast to peptidyl-dipeptidase A (EC it displays no Cl- dependence and shows no action on angiotensin I. Conversely, peptidyl-dipeptidase A is unable to release Phe-Arg from the C-terminus of atriopeptin II
