    ..In addition, complex glycosylated forms were detected in the culture medium, suggesting that the enzyme is secreted after proteolytic removal of the membrane anchor. ..
  6. Eldering J, Grunberg J, Hahn D, Croes H, Fransen J, Sterchi E. Polarised expression of human intestinal N-benzoyl-L-tyrosyl-p-aminobenzoic acid hydrolase (human meprin) alpha and beta subunits in Madin-Darby canine kidney cells. Eur J Biochem. 1997;247:920-32 pubmed
    ..These studies indicate that assembly of the two subunits of PPH is required for the localisation of the alpha subunit to the plasma membrane. In contrast to rodent meprin, both PPH subunits are apically secreted from MDCK cells. ..

    ..Our results have implications for the decline of LPH after weaning and for human adult-type alactasia, and for the evolutionary history of LPH. ..

    ..The results are discussed in relation to the importance of controlling livestock before importation. ..
