Function for LAP3 Gene

Molecular function for LAP3 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
Release of an N-terminal amino acid, Xaa- -Yaa-, in which Xaa is preferably Leu, but may be other amino acids including Pro although not Arg or Lys, and Yaa may be Pro. Amino acid amides and methyl esters are also readily hydrolyzed, but rates on arylamides are exceedingly low.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
Release of N-terminal proline from a peptide.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Presumably involved in the processing and regular turnover of intracellular proteins. Catalyzes the removal of unsubstituted N-terminal amino acids from various peptides.
