|Gene:||DPEP1||Accession Number: G-7621 (MetaCyc)|
Synonyms: renal dipeptidase, RDP
Species: Rattus norvegicus
Several enzymes have been implicated in the hydrolysis of the cysteinyl-glycine dipeptide. Semenza [Semenza57] reported the isolation of such an enzyme from hog kidney. That enzyme was membrane bound, or at least enriched in membrane fractions. Two other peptidases with the same activity were isolated, and found to be membrane proteins as well; aminopeptidase M (EC 126.96.36.199) [Rankin80] and dehydropeptidase I (EC 188.8.131.52) [Hirota85]. The highest activities of these membrane-bound enzymes was found in kidney, intestine, and lung.
Unlike the above mentioned tissues, it was shown that in rat and ginea pig livers over 90% of the activity is found in the cytosolic fraction. Joesch et al [Josch03] have shown that this activity correlates with the cytosolic leucyl aminopeptidase (EC 184.108.40.206).

Dehydropeptidase I has been purified from pig kidney to homogeneity [Hirota85] and is implicated in the renal metabolism of glutathione and its conjugates.. It hydrolyzes a wide range of dipeptides, including L-leucyl-L-leucine dipeptide and L-cysteinyl-glycine. It also converts leukotriene D4 to leukotriene E4, and may play an important role in the regulation of leukotriene activity.
