Identification and characterization of the second cysteine protease inhibitor of Clonorchis sinensis (CsStefin-2)

Abstract

CsStefin-2, the second cysteine protease inhibitor of Clonorchis sinensis, was identified and characterized. CsStefin-2 is a cysteine protease inhibitor that belongs to family 1 stefins based on its phylogenetic and structural properties. However, CsStefin-2 had a QIVSG cystatin motif distinct from the common QVVAG cystatin motif that is well conserved in… (More)
