The inactivation of [Met5]-enkephalin by bestatin-sensitive aminopeptidase, captopril-sensitive peptidyl dipeptidase A and thiorphan-sensitive endopeptidase-24.11 in mouse vas deferens.

The enkephalin-hydrolyzing peptidases in mouse vas deferens were studied and compared with those in guinea pig ileum which had been characterized in the previous study. The present results showed that three distinct peptidases, bestatin-sensitive aminopeptidase, captopril-sensitive peptidyl dipeptidase A, and thiorphan-sensitive endopeptidase-24.11, played a critical role in the inactivation of enkephalin in mouse vas deferens, being consistent with the previous results obtained with guinea pig ileum. However, the data in both previous and present studies showed that the activity of the bestatin-sensitive aminopeptidase relative to that of either the captopril-sensitive peptidyl dipeptidase A or the thiorphan-sensitive endopeptidase-24.11 in guinea pig ileum was higher than that in mouse vas deferens, while the activity of either peptidyl dipeptidase A or endopeptidase-24.11 relative to that of aminopeptidase in mouse vas deferens was higher than that in guinea-pig ileum. In contrast to these three enzymes, both L-tyrosyl-L-tyrosine-sensitive dipeptidyl aminopeptidase and D-phenylalanine-sensitive carboxypeptidase were suggested not to be involved significantly in the inactivation of enkephalin in mouse vas deferens as well as guinea pig ileum.[1]
