It was observed by Hanes et al., using paper chromatographic procedures, that kidney extracts were able to catalyze transpeptidation reactions involving y-glutamyl peptides. Independently, Kinoshita and Ball observed the same reaction by a method which permitted quantitative measurement of the product formed.
