How to use Proteases in a sentence
We will review enzyme catalysis using the catalytic triad of proteases.
Once activated caspases act as cysteine proteases, using a cysteine side chain for catalyzing peptide bond cleavage at aspartyl residues in their substrates.
Many of these proteins are also cleaved by proteases, and these enzyme activities are targets of drugs that stop invasion.
Pseudomonas are highly motile and posses multiple virulence factors including proteases and exotoxins.
We are developing new methods, for instance using cleavage by highly specific proteases, to inactivate proteins in fission yeast.Advertisement
Current efforts are therefore directed at the development of polymers that are degraded specifically by different proteases.
The two proteases trypsin and chymotrypsin are grouped into the serine protease family.
This is the case in the trypsin family of serine proteases, examined in more detail later in this section.
