BACKGROUND The 20S proteasome is a multicatalytic protease complex that exhibits trypsin-like, chymotrypsin-like and post-glutamyl-peptide hydrolytic activities associated with the active sites of the beta2, beta5 and beta1 subunits, respectively. Modulation of these activities using inhibitors is essential for a better understanding of the proteasome's mechanism of action. Although there are highly selective inhibitors of the proteasome's chymotryptic activity, inhibitors of similar… CONTINUE READING
