Human kallikrein 5 (KLK5) is a potential target for the treatment of skin inflammation and cancer. A new series of statine based peptidomimetic compounds were designed and synthesized through simple and efficient reactions. Some KLK5 inhibitors (2a-c compounds) were identified with nanomolar affinity showing Ki values of 0.12-0.13 μM. Our molecular modeling(More)
Serine peptidase inhibitor (serpin) is the name given to the superfamily of proteins with wide range of biological functions, and that the main feature is the inhibition of serine proteases. Here we describe the inhibitory characterization of a serpin from Gloeobacter violaceus that we named vioserpin. The serpin presented a high specificity to inhibit(More)
