ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.19.2

Accepted Name
Peptidyl-glycinamidase.
Alternative Name(s)
Carboxyamidase.
Peptidyl carboxyamidase.
Reaction catalysed
Cleavage of C-terminal glycinamide from polypeptides
Comment(s)
  • Inactivates vasopressin and oxytocin by splitting off glycinamide.
  • Also cleaves ester substrates of trypsin and chymotrypsin.
  • Although glycinamide is by far the preferred leaving group, other aminoacylamides may also be released, e.g. phenylalaninamide.
  • The toad skin enzyme is inhibited by diisopropyl fluorophosphate.
  • Formerly EC 3.4.15.2.
