Literature associating AQPEP and lacrimal gland adenocarcinoma
Aminopeptidase Q; Metalloprotease which may be important for placentation by regulating biological activity of key peptides at the embryo- maternal interface. On synthetic substrates it shows a marked preference for Leu-4-methylcoumaryl-7-amide (Leu-MCA) over Met- MCA, Arg-LCA and Lys-LCA. Cleaves the N-terminal amino acid of several peptides such as angiotensin-3, kisspeptin-10 and endokinin C.
