Fragments of human, rheumatoid synovium were maintained on organ culture for three days under serum-less conditions. Their conditioned media contained collagenolytic, gelatinolytic and caseinolytic activities, which were susceptible to inhibition by lanthanide ions. Of the four lanthanides tested, Sm3+ proved the best inhibitor of gelatinase and caseinase,(More)
The sensitivity and utility of proteinase assays employing fluorescamine, a compound which reacts with primary amines to form a fluorescent adduct, was assessed. As little as 1 ng of purified trypsin or clostridiopeptidase A could be detected within 3 h of incubation at 37 degrees C, using casein or gelatin as substrates. Increasing the incubation period to(More)
