Literature associating ERAP2 and birdshot chorioretinopathy
Leukocyte-derived arginine aminopeptidase; Aminopeptidase that plays a central role in peptide trimming, a step required for the generation of most HLA class I- binding peptides. Peptide trimming is essential to customize longer precursor peptides to fit them to the correct length required for presentation on MHC class I molecules. Preferentially hydrolyzes the basic residues Arg and Lys; Aminopeptidases
