Substrate specificity and inhibitor sensitivity of a Trypanosoma cruzi alkaline peptidase.

Abstract

enzyme is a true cathepsin L. No enzyme with properties of cathepsin B were detected in T. cnrzi, although the enzyme described by Cazzulo and co-workers [3-51 has some features in common with cathepsin B. The enzyme that cleaves Ala-Ala-pNA is inhibited by E64, iodoacetic acid and leupeptin, but is not affected by inhibitors of serine, metalloor aspartic… (More)
