EC Number: 3.4.11.16

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Mass balance status: Undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: Xaa-Trp aminopeptidase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: aminopeptidase W, aminopeptidase X-Trp, X-Trp aminopeptidase

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Release of a variety of N-terminal residues (especially glutamate and leucine) from peptides, provided tryptophan (or at least phenylalanine or tyrosine) is the penultimate residue. Also acts on GluTrp, LeuTrp and a number of other dipeptides.

This is a glycoprotein containing Zn2+, from renal and intestinal brush border membranes.
