Title: Cathepsin H: Purification and Characterization of Inhibitors from Hog Kidney
Authors: Lee, Alan

Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: Cathepsin H is an important lysosomal thiol proteinase recently described and differentiated from another lysosomal proteinase, cathepsin B. Both cathepsins H and B resemble papain (a thiol proteinase frpm papaya) and show optimal activity in the neutral pH range. Both are able to hydrolyze the synthetic substrate benzoyl-DL-arginine-2-naphthyl amide (BANA).
