Cathepsin B (EC is one of the most versatile human cysteine cathepsins. It is important for intracellular protein degradation under normal conditions and is involved in a number of pathological processes. The occluding loop makes cathepsin B unique among cysteine cathepsins. This ∼ 20 residue long insertion imbedded into the papain-like protease(More)
Major histocompatibility class (MHC) II molecules are essential for running adaptive immune response. They are produced in the ER and targeted to late endosomes with the help of invariant chain (Ii) trimers. Ii trimerization may be induced by the Ii TM domain. To enable mechanistic and structural studies of MHC class II-Ii assembly, soluble forms of the(More)
Nuclear factor I (NFI) is a transcription factor playing wide role in signal transduction pathways and developmental processes in higher eukaryotes. In order to produce recombinant NFI proteins for functional and structural studies, full length cDNAs of individual isoforms were subcloned into pETM30 vector and expressed in Escherichia coli. Although the(More)
