EC 18.104.22.168 - Carboxypeptidase C
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
lysosomal carboxypeptidase A
lysosomal protective protein
serine carboxypeptidase I
- Release of a C-terminal amino acid with broad specificity.
A carboxypeptidase with optimum pH 4.5-6.0, inhibited by diisopropyl fluorophosphate, and sensitive to thiol-blocking reagents (reviewed in ). Widely distributed in eukaryotes. Type example of peptidase family S10. Formerly EC 22.214.171.124 and EC 126.96.36.199, and included in EC 188.8.131.52. This enzyme is probably also identical to lysosomal tyrosine carboxypeptidase, formerly EC 184.108.40.206.
