Microplate Assay to Study Carboxypeptidase A Inhibition in Andean Potatoes
Metallocarboxypeptidases (MCP) are zinc-dependent exopeptidases that catalyze the hydrolysis of C-terminal amide bonds in proteins and peptides. They are involved in a wide range of physiological processes and have recently emerged as relevant drug ...
