Cystatin S: a cysteine proteinase inhibitor of human saliva.

Abstract

An acidic protein of human saliva, which we named SAP-1 previously, is now shown to be an inhibitor of several cysteine proteinases. The protein inhibited papain and ficin strongly, and stem bromelain and bovine cathepsin C partially. However, it did not inhibit either porcine cathepsin B or clostripain. The mode of the inhibition of papain was found to be… (More)
