Background: DPPIV/CD26

Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPPIV, also known as CD26) is an approximately 110 kDa serine exopeptidase that releases Xaa-Pro or Xaa-Ala dipeptides from the N‑terminus of oligo- and polypeptides. Mature human DPPIV consists of a 6 amino acid (aa) cytoplasmic tail, a 22 aa transmembrane segment, and a 738 aa extracellular domain (ECD) that contains the catalytic active site (1). DPPIV is expressed as a noncovalent homodimer on the surface of epithelial cells, endothelial cells, and activated lymphocytes, and it can be released by MMP mediated shedding (2). It regulates immune and endocrine function through the cleavage of multiple chemokines, growth factors, and peptide hormones (3,4). It cleaves a range of peptide hormones including Glucagon, Glucagon-like Peptides 1 and 2, GIP, GHRH, Procalcitonin, Neuropeptide Y, and Substance P (5). It is released from adipocytes and induces insulin resistance in adipocytes and skeletal muscle (6). DPPIV also cleaves many chemokines, resulting in altered chemotactic activity (7-10) or impacting chemokine blockade of HIV-1 cellular infectivity depending on the chemokine target (7,9,11). It cleaves human GM-CSF and IL-3 and reduces their ability to promote myeloid cell development (12). In addition to enzymatic cleavage functions, DPPIV interacts with adenosine deaminase on T cells and with caveolin-1 on antigen presenting cells (13), provides costimulatory proliferation and activation signals to both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells (13,14), and serves as a cell entry coreceptor for HIV and coronavirus MERS-CoV-2 (15,16). DPPIV inhibitors are approved for therapeutic treatment in type 2 diabetes (17) and are being explored for treatment of several additional conditions including autoimmune diseases (18).
