Zusammenfassung
An alanyl-alanyl-phenylalanyl-7-amino-4-methylcoumarin-hydrolyzing protease particle copurifying with 265 proteasomes was isolated and identified as tripeptidyl peptidase II(TPPII), a cytosolic subtilisin-like peptidase of unknown function. The particle is larger than the 265 proteasome and has a rod-shaped, dynamic supramolecular structure. TPPII exhibits enhanced activity in proteasome inhibitor-adapted cells and degrades polypeptides by exo- as well as predominantly trypsin-like endoproteolytic cleavage. TPPII may thus participate in extralysosomal polypeptide degradation and may in part account for nonproteasomal epitope generation as postulated for certain major histocompatibility complex class I alleles, In addition, TPPII may be able to substitute for some metabolic functions of the proteasome.
