The role of proteinases of the histiophagous ciliate Philasterides dicentrarchi, purified by affinity chromatography in bacitracin-Sepharose, on apoptosis (programmed cell death) of turbot pronephric leucocytes (PL) was investigated. The results showed that more than 90% of proteinases purified by bacitracin-Sepharose were cysteine proteinases, which lacked significant caspase-3-like activity and generated three main gelatinolytic bands of molecular weights 36, 45 and 77 kDa as determined by… CONTINUE READING
