carboxypeptidase

 [kahr-bok″se-pep´tĭ-dās]
an exopeptidase that acts only on the peptide linkage of a terminal amino acid containing a free carboxyl group.

car·box·y·pep·ti·dase

(kar-bok'sē-pep'ti-dās),
A hydrolase that removes the amino acid at the free carboxyl end of a polypeptide chain; an exopeptidase.

carboxypeptidase

/car·boxy·pep·ti·dase/ (-pep´tĭ-dās) any exopeptidase that catalyzes the hydrolytic cleavage of the terminal or penultimate bond at the end of a peptide or polypeptide where the free carboxyl group occurs.

carboxypeptidase

(kär-bŏk′sē-pĕp′tĭ-dās′, -dāz′)
n.
Any of several enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of the terminal amino acid of a polypeptide from the end that contains a free carboxyl group.

carboxypeptidase

Any enzyme (EC 3.4.16 to EC 3.4.18) which hydrolyses (cleaves) the peptide bond of the COOH terminal amino acid from a peptide; carboxypeptidase A removes aromatic or branched hydrocarbons, while carboxypeptidase B removes positively charged terminal lysine or arginine amino acid residues.

car·box·y·pep·ti·dase

(kahr-bok'sē-pep'ti-dās)
A hydrolase that removes the amino acid at the free carboxyl end of a polypeptide chain; an exopeptidase.

carboxypeptidase

an exopeptidase that catalyses the hydrolysis of amino acids in polypeptide chains from the C-terminal.

carboxypeptidase (kärbok´sēpep´-tidās),

n an exopeptidase that stimulates the hydrolytic cleavage of the last or second to last peptide bond at the C-terminal end of a peptide or polypeptide.

carboxypeptidase

an exopeptidase enzyme secreted by the pancreas that acts only on the peptide linkage of a terminal amino acid containing a free carboxyl group; includes carboxypeptidases A and B.
