Carboxypeptidases are a group of enzymes that cleave amino acids from the C'-terminal of proteins and peptides by hydrolysis. There are three subgroups of carboxypeptidases; serine-type carboxypeptidases (E.C. 3.4.16.x), for example carboxypeptidase C, metallocarboxypeptidases (E.C. 3.4.17.x), for example glutamate carboxypeptidase II, and cysteine-type carboxypeptidases (E.C. 3.4.18.x), for example cathepsin X.
These enzymes are involved in a diverse range of biological processes including synthesis of neuroendocrine peptides, blood clotting, growth factor production, wound healing and reproduction.View all products for Carboxypeptidases »
