Four novel peptides that inhibit cathepsin B, designated as Cabin-1, -2, -3, and -4, were isolated from a thermolysin digest of human plasma. After gel filtration and cation-exchange chromatography, the peptide mixture was purified by reverse-phase HPLC to isolate Cabin-1, -2, -3, and 4, with the amino acid sequences LGPVTQE, VLQSSGLYS, VVSVLT, and LVYDAY,(More)
