  Domain Name: M14_CPZ
Peptidase M14 carboxypeptidase subfamily N/E-like; Carboxypeptidase Z subgroup. Peptidase M14-like domain of carboxypeptidase (CP) Z (CPZ), CPZ belongs to the N/E subfamily of the M14 family of metallocarboxypeptidases (MCPs). The M14 family are zinc-binding CPs which hydrolyze single, C-terminal amino acids from polypeptide chains, and have a recognition site for the free C-terminal carboxyl group, which is a key determinant of specificity. CPZ is a secreted Zn-dependent enzyme whose biological function is largely unknown. Unlike other members of the N/E subfamily, CPZ has a bipartite structure, which consists of an N-terminal cysteine-rich domain (CRD) whose sequence is similar to Wnt-binding proteins, and a C-terminal CP catalytic domain that removes C-terminal Arg residues from substrates. CPZ is enriched in the extracellular matrix and is widely distributed during early embryogenesis. That the CRD of CPZ can bind to Wnt4 suggests that CPZ plays a role in Wnt signaling.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
