Gly-Xaa carboxypeptidase (EC 3.4.17.4, glycine carboxypeptidase, carboxypeptidase a, carboxypeptidase S, peptidase alpha, yeast carboxypeptidase) is an enzyme.[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

Release of a C-terminal amino acid from a peptide in which glycine is the penultimate amino acid, e.g. Z-Gly!Leu

This enzyme is isolated from yeast.
