Abstract

The mouse dipeptidyl peptidase I cDNA has been cloned and sequenced and patterns of DPPI mRNA expression in various tissues characterized. Sequences encoding DPPI are highly conserved among mouse, rat and human and include an unusually long propeptide and a distinctive tyrosine adjacent to the active site cysteine.
