Evidence for the existence of both proteasomes and a novel high molecular weight peptidase in Entamoeba histolytica.

Abstract

To screen for high molecular weight proteases in Entamoeba histolytica, we subjected a soluble amebal extract to density gradient centrifugation and tested the fractions for activity against the chymotryptic peptide substrate, Suc-leucyl-leucyl-valyl-tyrosyl-4-methylcoumaryl-7-amide. Two peaks of activity, of approximately 11 and 20 S, were clearly… (More)
