CD10, also known as membrane metallo-endopeptidase, neutral endopeptidase (NEP), Neprilysin, or common acute lymphoblastic leukemia antigen (CALLA), is a zinc-dependent metalloprotease enzyme that degrades a number of small secreted peptides, most notably theamyloid beta peptide whose abnormal misfolding and aggregation in neural tissue has been implicated as a cause of Alzheimers disease. This gene is localized to human chromosome 3 by study of somatic cell hybrids and regionalized the location to 3q21-q27 by in situ hybridization. By cDNA transfection analysis, CD10 is confirmed as a functional neutral endopeptidase of the type that has previously been called enkephalinase. CD10 has also been called atriopeptidase. Atriopeptidase specifically degrades atrial natriuretic factor. A specific enzyme inhibitor was developed and reported that it had effects similar to those of low-dose ANF infusion. These effects include diuresis, natriuresis, vasodilatation, and suppression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system.
