The kinetics of porcine‐carboxypeptidase‐B‐catalyzed hydrolysis of several N‐blocked peptides that differ in size and in C‐terminal amino acid were examined. The data demonstrate different kinetic behaviour of carboxypeptidase‐B‐catalyzed hydrolysis of basic and non‐basic substrates. These studies are consistent with our proposed multiple loci model. The results also show a number of differences between carboxypeptidases A and B, as well as several similarities.
