Endogenous inhibitors for calcium-activated neutral protease (CANP) were purified from rabbit erythrocytes and liver. The purified inhibitors showed single bands but with significantly different mobilities on sodium dodecylsulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Peptide mapping and sequencing analyses have revealed that the erythrocyte inhibitor (429 residues) retains the C-terminal three repetitive units of the liver inhibitor (639 residues), which contains four potential repetitive units for inhibition of CANP. The erythrocyte and liver inhibitors inhibited 3 and 4 moles of CANP on the basis of the molecular weights of 46,000 and 68,000, respectively. © 1987.
