ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Peptidyl-dipeptidase B.
Alternative Name(s)
Atrial di-(tri-)peptidyl carboxylase.
Atriopeptin convertase.
Dipeptidyl carboxyhydrolase.
Reaction catalysed
Release of a C-terminal dipeptide or exceptionally a tripeptide
  • A membrane-bound, zinc metallopeptidase located in mammalian atrial, but not ventricular, myocytes.
  • Although it is capable of converting the 126-residue atriopeptin III directly to atriopeptin I by releasing a C-terminal tripeptide Phe- Arg-Tyr, it is generally restricted to the release of dipeptides.
  • In contrast to EC it displays no chlorine dependence and shows no action on angiotensin I.
  • Conversely, peptidyl-dipeptidase a is unable to release Phe-Arg from the C-terminus of atriopeptin II.
