Cytosol Nonspecific Dipeptidase (CNDP2)

The human CNDP2 gene encodes cytosol nonspecific dipeptidase, a member of the M20 family of metalloproteases. Also known as glutamate carboxypeptidase-like protein 1 (CPGL), tissue carnosinase or peptidase A, CNDP2 is ubiquitously expressed throughout human tissues. Unlike CNDP1, CNDP2 has broad substrate specificity for dipeptides with free amino and carboxyl groups.
