Abstract : During an extensive study on the substrate specificity of a ribosomal-bound aminopeptidase in E, coli B it became apparent that the peptidase showed a rather narrow substrate specificity of such a nature to suggest it might be involved in the selective removal of the methionyl group from newly synthesized proteins. Some of the pertinent data is summarized in the communication. (Author)
