Abstract

The heme peroxidase-catalyzed iodination of human angiotensins I and II is described. It is observed that lactoperoxiclase (LPO) can effectively and selectively iodinate the tyrosyl residues in angiotensin peptides. The thiourea/thiouracil-based peroxidase inhibitors effectively inhibit the iodination reactions, indicating that iodination is an enzymatic reaction and the mechanism of iodination is similar to that of peroxidase-catalyzed iodination of thyroglobulin. This study also shows that the monoiodo Ang I is a better substrate for the angiotensin converting enzyme than the native peptide.
