The mutually exclusive use of alternative reactive site loop (RSL) cassettes due to alternative splicing of serpin (serine protease inhibitor) gene transcripts is a widespread strategy to create target-selective protease inhibitors in the animal kingdom. Since molecular basis and evolution of serpin RSL cassette exon amplification and diversification are(More)
In several branches of the tree of life, alternative splicing of a single primary transcript may give rise to multiple serpin isoforms exhibiting different target enzyme specificities. Though the continuously increasing number of genome sequencing projects has been paralleled by a rapidly rising number of serpin genes, the full spectrum of isoforms that(More)
