Aspartyl aminopeptidase is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the DNPEP gene.[1][2]

The protein encoded by this gene is an aminopeptidase which prefers acidic amino acids, and specifically favors aspartic acid over glutamic acid. It is thought to be a cytosolic protein involved in general metabolism of intracellular proteins.[2]
