    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • carboxypeptidase M cleaving basic C terminal amino acids in monocyte to macrophage differentiation
  • membrane-bound zinc-dependent protease that cleaves C-terminal basic residues, such as arginine or lysine, from peptides/proteins 1)
  • likely a cellular player in lipid uptake and/or metabolism of activated macrophages (MAs) by promoting foam cell formation
  • could likely promote foam cell formation by acting in the lipid regulation process of macrophages
  • inhibition of CPM, the key enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of BDKRB1 agonists, could exert the same beneficial effects to BDKRB1 antagonism in insulin resistance
  • is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchored enzyme that plays an important role in the kallikrein-kinin system (KKS)
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, differentiation

    small molecule metal binding,
    zinc Zn2+
    protein
  • activating peptide hormones at local tissue sites, before or after binding to their ligands
  • close relationship of BDKRB1 and CPM on the membrane is required for efficiently generatingoles in inflammation
  • spatial proximity between ACE and the endogenous CPM BDKRB1 signals, which play important r enables an ACE-evoked release of CPM
  • BDKRB1 positively modulates both CPM expression and activity, suggesting that CPM-BDKRB1 interaction in membrane microdomains might affect enzyme activity, beyond interfering in receptors signaling
