• protease
  • A cysteine protease, papain, is a prototypic protease allergen that can directly activate basophils and mast cells, leading to the production of cytokines, including IL-4, characteristic of the type 2 immune response. (ox.ac.uk)
  • In this study, we identified a cDNA encoding for a cathepsin L-like cysteine protease from the T solium metacestode (TsCL-1) and characterized the biochemical properties of the recombinant enzyme. (ihb.ac.cn)
  • cathepsin
  • Sequence alignments of TsCL-1 showed low sequence similarity of 27.3-44.6 to cathepsin L-like cysteine proteases from other helminth parasites, but the similarity was increased to 35.9-55.0 when compared to mature domains. (ihb.ac.cn)
  • cells
  • The saturation density of NIH3T3 cells was increased by repeated treatment with cysteine proteinase-specific inhibitors such as N-acetyl-leucyl-leucyl-norleucinal (ALLN), N-acetyl-leucyl-leucyl-methioninal (ALLM), E-64 and chicken egg white cystatin. (semanticscholar.org)
