Prolidase is a manganese(Mn)-requiring homodimeric iminodipeptidase
that releases carboxy-terminal proline or hydroxyproline from oligopeptides.6 It has been shown that an increase in prolidase enzyme activity is correlated with increased rates of collagen turnover.7 Increased oxidative stress might have a role in the changing of tubal envoirement8 and tubal epithelial cells might be replaced by collagen fibres.
