CPQ (Q9Y646) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
CPQ, Carboxypeptidase Q
Enzyme Classification 3.4.17.-
Also Known as CBPQ_HUMAN, CPQ, LCH1, PGCP
Carboxypeptidase that may play an important role in the hydrolysis of circulating peptides. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of dipeptides with unsubstituted terminals into amino acids. May play a role in the liberation of thyroxine hormone from its thyroglobulin (Tg) precursor. Homodimer. The monomeric form is inactive while the homodimer is active.
