Type IV collagenase and cathepsins L and H : proteinases involved in tumour invasion.
The collagenolytic proteinases, type IV collagenase and cathepsins Land H, have been implicated in tumour invasion and metastasis, by virtue of their degradative action on the extracellular matrix barriers traversed by ...
Trypanopain : a possible target for anti-trypanosomal agents?
The protozoan parasite Trypanosoma brucei brucei causes nagana in cattle and is a widely used model for human sleeping sickness. The major lysosomal cysteine proteinases (trypanopains) of African trypanosomes may contribute ...
A serine oligopeptidase from African Trypanosomes.
Protozoan parasites of the genus Trypanosoma are responsible for chronic and widespread disease in livestock and humans in Africa. This study describes the purification and characterisation of a serine oligopeptidase ...
Studies on a multicatalytic, protease complex from Trypanosoma brucei brucei.
Subcellular fractionation (together with immunocytochemical localisation studies) showed that the parasite Trypanosoma brucei brucei possesses a multicatalytic protease complex (MCPTb). This complex is predominantly ...
Redox properties of cathepsin B in relation to its activity in vivo.
The main site for protein degradation along the endosomal pathway is believed to be the late endosome. Lysosomes are thought to be storage organelles that, when necessary, inject proteases into the late endosome. It was ...
