Isolation and sequence analysis of cDNA for rat carboxypeptidase E [EC], a neuropeptide processing enzyme

Molecular Endocrinology 3(4): 666-673

Isolation and sequence analysis of cDNA for rat carboxypeptidase E [EC], a neuropeptide processing enzyme

A cDNA encoding full-length rat carboxypeptidase E (CPE) was isolated and sequenced. The nucleotide and amino acid sequences of rat CPE showed substantial homology with the bovine sequences. The bovine and rat nucleotide sequences were homologous within the entire coding region, as well as within several portions of the 3' untranslated region. The predicted amino acid sequence of rat CPE was more than 90% homologous with the bovine enzyme.
