Cathepsin A

A carboxypeptidase that catalyzes the release of a C-terminal amino acid with a broad specificity. It also plays a role in the LYSOSOMES by protecting BETA-GALACTOSIDASE and NEURAMINIDASE from degradation. It was formerly classified as EC 3.4.12.1 and EC 3.4.21.13.
Also Known As:
Acid Carboxypeptidase; BGPP; Endothelin Degradation Enzyme; Serine Carboxypeptidase I; beta-Galactosidase Protective Protein; beta Galactosidase Protective Protein; Carboxypeptidase C; Carboxypeptidase Y; Lysosomal Protective Protein
