Abstract:

The zinc metalloendopeptidase EC3.4.24.15 [EP24.15, thimet oligopeptidase], a neuropeptide processing enzyme, is central to the formation and degradation of many bioactive peptides in the neural proteome, and is highly expressed in normal prostate. EP24.15 actions are increased in androgen-dependent prostate cancer compared to androgen-independent; augmented by androgen treatment, and inhibited by clinical GnRH analogs. The “neural” prostate includes: neuropeptides, cognate receptors and processing enzymes regulating signaling of peptide-mediated neural inputs.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
