The alkaline proteinase from the mesophilic bacterium Bacillus mesentericus has been crystallized in a 1:1 complex with the inhibitor eglin-C from the medical leech. The crystals have cell dimensions of a = 43.0, b = 71.9, c = 48.3 A and beta = 110.0 degrees and are in the space group P2(1). Three-dimensional data to 2.0 A have been recorded on film from a(More)
BACKGROUND In general, drug metabolism has to be considered to avoid adverse effects and ineffective therapy. In particular, chemotherapeutic drug cocktails strain drug metabolizing enzymes especially the cytochrome P450 family (CYP). Furthermore, a number of important chemotherapeutic drugs such as cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide, tamoxifen or procarbazine(More)
The inhibition of serine proteinases by both synthetic and natural inhibitors has been widely studied. Eglin c is a small thermostable protein isolated from the leech, Hirudo medicinalis. Eglin c is a potent serine proteinase inhibitor. The three-dimensional structure of native eglin and of its complexes with a number of proteinases are known. We here(More)
