Table 1 Active site residue comparison. Comparison of positionally identical active site residues in Vibrio proteolyticus aminopeptidase and human pituitary glutaminyl cyclase. A designation of "none" means the residue plays no discernable role in the enzymatic reaction.

From: Human glutaminyl cyclase and bacterial zinc aminopeptidase share a common fold and active site
