CD26/dipeptidyl peptidase IV: A regulator of immune function and a potential molecular target for therapy.
University, who worked at that time on translocation of proteins across the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane, a process that involves cleavage of the leader peptide by signal peptidase, to Jeffrey Roberts in Cornell University who worked on E. coli RecA protein-directed cleavage of phage l repressor and its requirement for polynucleotide, and to Harvey Lodish at the M.I.T. who worked, among other subjects, on processing of viral polyproteins.
Recent comments by Dr. Daniel Drucker, a professor at the University of Toronto and leader in diabetes and endocrinology, suggested dipeptidyl peptidase agents such as those being developed by Merck and Novartis have potential as effective second-line treatments for type 2 diabetes, according to Morgan Stanley.
It was not until the mid-1990s that researchers saw another way: An enzyme called dipeptidyl peptidase four DPP4 broke down GLP, and by inhibiting it, researchers could boost GLP levels in the body.
Those results, as well as data on a class of drugs known as dipeptidyl peptidase IV inhibitors DPIV, could provide a catalyst for OSI shares, the Wachovia analyst said.
