Purification of cysteine proteinases from adult Schistosoma mansoni.

Abstract

Proteolytic activity against hemoglobin and low molecular weight synthetic substrates has been previously found in homogenates and excretion/secretion products of adult Schistosoma mansoni worms. This activity is stimulated in the presence of thiol compounds and is maximally active at acidic pH. To characterize further this proteolytic activity, lyophilized… (More)
