Activity-based probes that target diverse cysteine protease families
Proteases are one of the largest and best-characterized families of enzymes in the human proteome. Unfortunately, the understanding of protease function in the context of complex proteolytic cascadesExpand

Dual microglia effects on blood brain barrier permeability induced by systemic inflammation
Microglia survey brain parenchyma, responding to injury and infections. Microglia also respond to systemic disease, but the role of blood–brain barrier (BBB) integrity in this process remainsExpand

Procalcitonin as a useful biomarker for determining the need to perform emergency biliary drainage in cases of acute cholangitis
It is important to identify biomarkers for sepsis and organ damage in acute cholangitis patients. We investigated the usefulness of procalcitonin (PCT) as a biomarker of inflammation based on theExpand

A general solid phase method for the preparation of diverse azapeptide probes directed against cysteine proteases.
[chemical reaction: see text]. A solid phase approach is presented for the synthesis of azapeptide inhibitors and activity based probes (ABPs) for cysteine proteases. This synthetic method allows theExpand
