The major HDM, Der f 2, induces inflammatory cytokine expression. Little is known about the signaling pathway involved. OBJECTIVE We wanted to define the Der f 2 signaling pathway(More)
An intracellular leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) fromPenicillium citrinum (IFO 6352) was purified to homogeneity using three successive purification steps. The enzyme has a native molecular mass of 63 kDa using HPLC gel filtration analysis and a molecular mass of 65 kDa when using SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. This monomeric aminopeptidase showed(More)
