Purification, cloning and autoproteolytic processing of an aspartic proteinase from Centaurea calcitrapa.
Plant aspartic proteinases (APs) have been isolated from several seed and leaf sources but the only well characterized enzymes from flowers are cardosins and cyprosins from cardoon, CynaraExpand

Growth and proteolytic activity of hairy roots from Centaurea calcitrapa: effect of nitrogen and sucrose
Abstract Centaurea calcitrapa hairy root cultures were established by infection with Agrobacterium rhizogenes strain LBA 9402. The liquid medium hairy root cultures exhibited a biomass doubling timeExpand

Degradation of caseins from milk of different species by extracts of Centaurea calcitrapa
Two purified aqueous extracts of Centaurea calcitrapa, a plant from the Compositae family, were shown to degrade bovine, ovine, and caprine milk caseinates. The corresponding hydrolysis patterns wereExpand

Caseinolytic Activity of Fruit Extract from Opuntia ficus‐indicaon Bovine, Caprine, and Ovine Sodium Caseinates
The rates and extents of hydrolysis of αS‐ and β‐caseins from bovine, caprine, and ovine sodium caseinates produced by an enzymatic extract of the fruit of Opuntia ficus‐indica, (L.) Miller wereExpand

Molecular cloning of aspartic proteinases from flowers of Cynara cardunculus SUBSP. flavescens CV. cardoon and Centaurea calcitrapa.
Aspartic proteinases of human, animal, parasite, fungal and retroviral origin have been extensively investigated. The 3-D structures of several such enzymes have been solved and they all have aExpand

Enzymes of Opuntia ficus-indica (L.) Miller with potential industrial applications-I
We report on the screening of different enzymes such as arylamidases, lipases, proteinases, and glucosidases in plant extracts of the Cactaceae family, genus Opuntia, as well as on a newly purifiedExpand
