Enzyme Commission Primary Name: dipeptidase E
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: aspartyl dipeptidase, peptidase E, PepE gene product (Salmonella typhimurium)
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): 39.271484 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Dipeptidase E catalyzes the hydrolysis of dipeptides Asp-|-Xaa. It does not act on peptides with N-terminal Glu, Asn or Gln, nor does it cleave isoaspartyl peptides.
A free carboxy group is not absolutely required in the substrate since Asp-Phe-NH2 and Asp-Phe-OMe are hydrolysed somewhat more slowly than dipeptides with free C-termini.
No peptide larger than a C-blocked dipeptide is known to be a substrate.
Asp-NH-Np is hydrolysed and is a convenient substrate for routine assay.
The enzyme is most active near pH 7.0, and is not inhibited by di-isopropylfluorophosphate or phenylmethanesulfonyl fluoride.
Belongs to peptidase family S51.
