Accepted name: pyroglutamyl-peptidase II
Reaction: Release of the N-terminal pyroglutamyl group from pGlu┼His-Xaa tripeptides and pGlu┼His-Xaa-Gly tetrapeptides
Other name(s): thyroliberinase; pyroglutamyl aminopeptidase II; thyrotropin-releasing factor pyroglutamate aminopeptidase; pyroglutamate aminopeptidase II; pyroglutamyl peptidase II; thyroliberin-hydrolyzing pyroglutamate aminopeptidase; thyrotropin-releasing hormone-degrading pyroglutamate aminopeptidase; thyrotropin-releasing hormone-degrading peptidase; TRH aminopeptidase
Comments: Highly specific for thyrotropin releasing hormone (pyroglutamyl-histidyl-prolylamide). Will not cleave the pyroglutamyl-histidyl bond of luteinizing hormone releasing hormone. Found in serum and brain. Inhibited by metal chelators. In peptidase family M1 (membrane alanyl aminopeptidase family)
