0 X 10-7 M. 26 ARTHUR A . PATCHETT & EUGENE H. CORDES At the same time, a series of closely related and equally important studies on the constituents of the venom of the poisonous Japanese snake Agkistrodon halys blomhoffii were completed by Kato and Suzuki (146-150). From this venom, these workers identified and determined the structures of five undecapeptides, which are converting enzyme inhibitors. Like teprotide, these are proline-rich peptides: the structure of the most active one in vivo, which is at least as active as teprotide , is: < Glu-Lys-Trp-Arg-Pro-Pro-Pro-Val-Ser-ProPro.

Removal of the C-terminal carboxyl group of BPP5, abolished activity. Of several amino acids studied, proline was best in the C-terminal position and alanine in the penultimate position was consistent with high inhibitory activity. In the antepenultimate position, aromatic amino acids are preferred. 3 x lo4 M (Table 2). Inhibition by Ala-Pro is more potent than by His-Leu and Phe-Arg, which are products released by the enzyme from angiotensin-I and bradykinin respectively.
