DPEP1 (P16444) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis


DPEP1, Dipeptidase 1
Enzyme Classification
UniProt P16444

Also Known as DPEP1_HUMAN, DPEP1, MDP, RDP

Hydrolyzes a wide range of dipeptides. Implicated in the renal metabolism of glutathione and its conjugates. Converts leukotriene D4 to leukotriene E4; it may play an important role in the regulation of leukotriene activity. Homodimer; disulfide-linked.
