DPEP1 (EC 220.127.116.11) is a kidney membrane enzyme thathydrolyzes a variety of dipeptides and is implicated in renalmetabolism of glutathione and its conjugates, e.g., leukotriene D4(Kozak and Tate, 1982 [PubMed 6122685]). DPEP1 is responsible forhydrolysis of the beta-lactam ring of antibiotics, such as penemand carbapenem (Campbell et al., 1984 [PubMed 6334084]). Earlier,beta-lactamase enzymes were thought to occur only in bacteria,where their probable function was in protecting the organismsagainst the action of beta-lactam antibiotics. These antibioticsexhibit selective toxicity against bacteria but virtual inertnessagainst many eukaryotic cells (Adachi et al., 1990 [PubMed2303490]).
