Baboon (Papio ursinus) cathepsin L: purification, characterization and comparison with human and sheep cathepsin L.

Abstract

Cathepsin L was purified from the liver of a higher primate, the baboon (Papio ursinus), largely in a single-chain form and in the form of proteolytically active complexes with an endogenous cystatin. This mimics the situation found in both human and sheep livers. Both forms of cathepsin L were active at physiological pH. Physicochemical characterization… (More)
