Accepted name: tubulinyl-Tyr carboxypeptidase
Reaction: Cleavage of the -Glu┼Tyr bond to release the C-terminal tyrosine residue from the native tyrosinated tubulin. Inactive on Z-Glu-Tyr
Other name(s): carboxypeptidase-tubulin; soluble carboxypeptidase; tubulin-tyrosine carboxypeptidase; tubulin carboxypeptidase; tubulinyltyrosine carboxypeptidase; tyrosinotubulin carboxypeptidase; tyrosyltubulin carboxypeptidase; TTCPase; brain I carboxypeptidase
Comments: Active at neutral pH, from brain
