Enzymes (particularly of pancreas) that remove the C-terminal amino acid from a protein or peptide. Carboxypeptidase A, (EC 220.127.116.11) will remove any amino acid; carboxypeptidase B (EC 18.104.22.168) is specific for terminal lysine or arginine.
Enzyme that cleaves amino acids from a protein chain commencing at the C-terminal
A carboxypeptidase (EC number 3.4.16 - 3.4.18) is a protease enzyme that hydrolyzes (cleaves) a peptide bond at the carboxy-terminal (C-terminal) end of a protein or peptide. (Contrast with an aminopeptidase, which cleaves peptide bonds at the other end of the protein.) Humans, animals, and plants contain several types of carboxypeptidases that ha...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carboxypeptidase
