3.4.11.1: leucyl aminopeptidase

This is an abbreviated version, for detailed information about leucyl aminopeptidase, go to the full flat file.

Reaction

release of an N-terminal amino acid, Xaa-/-Yaa-, in which Xaa is preferably Leu, but may be other amino acids including Pro although not Arg or Lys, and Yaa may be Pro. Amino acid amides and methyl esters are also readily hydrolysed, but rates on arylamides are exceedingly low =
