Synergistic induction of anchorage-independent growth of NIH3T3 mouse fibroblasts by cysteine proteinase inhibitors and a tumor promoter.

Abstract

We have previously reported that Ras protein is a potent cysteine proteinase inhibitor. In order to examine whether the cysteine proteinase-inhibitory activity of Ras is involved in carcinogenesis, the effects of the following probes were investigated. Cystatin alpha is a cysteine proteinase-specific inhibitor and has some amino acid sequence homology with… (More)
