Effects of an inhibitor of tripeptidyl peptidase II (Ala-Ala-Phe-chloromethylketone) and its combination with an inhibitor of the chymotrypsin-like activity of the proteasome (PSI) on apoptosis, cell cycle and proteasome activity in U937 cells.

Abstract

AAF-AMC is not a specific TPP II substrate, since it is also hydrolyzed by purified proteasomes. Moreover, AAF-cmk, claimed to be a specific TPP II inhibitor, also inhibits the chymotrypsin-like activity of the proteasome. While AAF-cmk itself is mildly cytostatic to U-937 cells and induces cell cycle block in G1, its combination with PSI does not induce an… (More)
