Carboxypeptidases are involved in a wide range of physiological processes, ranging from the digestion of food to the biosynthesis of peptides that function in cell-cell signaling. There are two major groups of carboxypeptidases; one uses serine as an active site residue and the other uses zinc in the active site.
