The multiple cysteine proteinases characteristic of the amastigote forms of Leishmania mexicana mexicana have been shown to be of three types. The groups of enzymes are distinguished by their substrate specificities and physical properties and have been purified free from other proteinases and most other proteins. One group (A) comprises at least four… CONTINUE READING
