CPN1 is a plasma metallo-protease that cleaves basic amino acids from the C terminal of peptides and proteins. The protein is important in the regulation of peptides like kinins and anaphylatoxins, and has also been known as kininase-1 and anaphylatoxin inactivator. This protein is a tetramer comprised of two identical regulatory subunits and two identical catalytic subunits.
