NEP-2

CELE_T05A8.4, T05A8.4
T05A8.4 encodes a neprilysin; neprilysins are thermolysin-like zinc metallopeptidases, found on the outer surface of animal cells, that negatively regulate small signalling peptides (e.g., enkephalin, tachykinin, insulin, and natriuretic peptides) by cleaving them; while T05A8.4 is an ortholog of mammalian neutral endopeptidase (NEP), expressed on the brush-border membranes of kidney; more generally, T05A8.4 falls into a group of proteins that includes the classical neprilysins found in mammals (e.g., PEX [OMIM:307800] and the enkephalin cleaving enzymes).
