Summary
PepA has a broad specificity for successive removal of many N-terminal amino acids, although leucine is preferred as the residue N-terminal to the cleavage site. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG10694]. Aminopeptidase A/I is a peptidase that binds DNA and is required for maintenance of plasmid monomers, which is critical for proper plasmid segregation . [More information is available at EcoCyc: EG10694].
