Dipeptidases are secreted onto the brush border of the villi in the small intestine, where they cleave dipeptides into their two component amino acids prior to absorption.
DIPEPTIDASES convert dipeptides into amino acids
Dipeptidases are also found within the enterocytes themselves, performing cytosolic digestion of absorbed dipeptides.
