Membrane dipeptidase (EC, renal dipeptidase, dehydropeptidase I (DPH I), dipeptidase, aminodipeptidase, dipeptide hydrolase, dipeptidyl hydrolase, nonspecific dipeptidase, glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol-anchored renal dipeptidase, MBD, MDP, leukotriene D4 hydrolase) is an enzyme.[1][2][3][4] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

Hydrolysis of dipeptides (e.g., leukotriene D4, cystinyl-bis-glycine, some β-lactam antibiotics (e.g., carbapenem))

This membrane-bound, zinc enzyme has broad specificity.

Inhibitors include bestatin and cilastatin.
