PREP


prolyl endopeptidase


ENTREZID: 5550 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 6q21

OMIM: 600400


Summary Entrez
The protein encoded by this gene is a cytosolic prolyl endopeptidase that cleaves peptide bonds on the C-terminal side of prolyl residues within peptides that are up to approximately 30 amino acids long. Prolyl endopeptidases have been reported to be involved in the maturation and degradation of peptide hormones and neuropeptides. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
