Furthermore, human pancreatic trypsin inhibitor was found to inhibit the NS3 protease of HCV [45].
Por ejemplo, la hirudina es un polipeptido de 7 kDa aislado de la sanguijuela Hirudo medicinalis, capaz de inhibir especificamente trombina con un valor de [K.sub.i] = 8, 3 x [10.sup.-13] mol/L (Stone et al., 1987; Ascenzi et al., 1992; Stubbs y Bode, 1995; Ascenzi et al., 1995); mientras que el BPTI (bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor) es un potente inhibidor de tripsina ([K.sub.i] = 6, 0 x [10.sup.-14] mol/L), que tambien es capaz de inhibir otras enzimas que pertenecen a la misma clase mecanistica, como quimotripsina, calicreina y elastasa de neutrofilos (Fritz y Wunderer, 1983).
Mutations in the PRSS1 gene encoding trypsinogen 1 (4) and in the SPINK1 gene that encodes pancreatic trypsin inhibitor PSTI are associated with increased risk of AP (1).
They pointed out that inhibitors are commonly discovered by their activity against readily available enzymes, most commonly trypsin, chymotrypsin or subtilisin, and then are named after the source organism or tissue, as 'Streptomycin subtilisin inhibitor' or 'pancreatic trypsin inhibitor'.
The critical role of Glu-192 in restricting the reactivity of thrombin with the serpin, [[alpha].sub.1]-antitrypsin, and the Kunitz inhibitors, bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor and tissue factor pathway inhibitor is well studied (Rezaie, A.
The neutron structures of bovine pancreatic ribonuclease A (13), a uridine vanadate-ribonuclease A complex (14), porcine 2 Zn insulin (15), and bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor (16) were all determined using data collected with the NBS neutron diffractometer.
