Accepted name: D-stereospecific aminopeptidase
Reaction: Release of an N-terminal D-amino acid from a peptide, Xaa┼Yaa-, in which Xaa is preferably D-Ala, D-Ser or D-Thr. D-Amino acid amides and methyl esters also are hydrolysed, as is glycine amide
Other name(s): D-aminopeptidase
Comments: Known from the bacterium Ochrobactrum anthropi. In peptidase family S12 (D-Ala-D-Ala carboxypeptidase family) [2]
