|Protein Name||Dipeptidyl peptidase 1|
|Ref Sequence Id||NP_001028789.1|
|Amino Acid Lenth||463|
|Protein Existence Status||Reviewed: Experimental evidence at transcript level|
|Protein Function||cystein cathepsin; involved in a normal cellular protein degradation and turnover; aminodipeptidase|
|Biochemical Properties||Cysteine cathepsins are optimally active in a slightly acidic pH and are mostly unstable at neutral pH; exhibit broad specificity, cleave substrates preferentially after basic or hydrophobic residues; E-64 is a non-selective inhibitor of all the cysteine cathepsins, with the exception of cathepsin C, which is only weakly inhibited|
|Significance in milk||DPP4 is a key enzyme in intermediary metabolism by regulating important glycemic pathways; expression of DPP4 decreases with the onset of lactation|
|PTMs||Glycosylated: four glycans|
