Peptidylglycine alpha-amidating monooxygenase activity and TRH and CRF biosynthesis. Role of copper.

Abstract : Carboxy-terminal amidation of biologically active peptides, an important characteristic of more than half of these substances, occurs during the maturation process of peptide precursors. It is catalyzed by peptidylglycine alpha-amidating monooxygenase (PAM), an enzyme that is copper-dependent. We show here that alterations of copper stores in cultured cells from different origins (pancreas and hypothalamus) affect the immunoreactivity of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) (two alpha-amidated peptides). This suggests that copper can affect neuropeptide biosynthesis and may play a role in the endocrine or central nervous system function.
