An aspect of special interest is the in vivo dynamics of each of the dipeptides, since the mode or site of hydrolysis determines the capacity and efficiency of their utilization.

Recent studies using novel in vitro assays to measure hydrolase activity against glutamine-, tyrosine-, or cystine-containing dipeptides in cellular fractions from plasma, mucosa, and muscle demonstrated that dipeptides They are substrates for free peptidases (plasma and cytos1) and also for peptidases bound to the cell membrane.(84-87)
