A human urinary trypsin inhibitor preparation, MR-20, strongly inhibited granulocyte elastase activity. The concentration of MR-20 causing 50% inhibition of the hydrolysis of Suc(Ala) 3pNA by granulocyte elastase was estimated to be 6.4 X 10(-8) M (11 U/ml).

Serine protease inhibitors (SPIs) play a crucial role in regulation of both host and bacterial serine protease. They are classified into several protein families, where Kazal-type inhibitors are one of families with multi-domain. In the present study, the polymorphism of...

Spider-derived Kunitz-type serine protease inhibitors have been shown to exhibit plasmin and elastase inhibition activity and potassium channel blocking activity, but thus far, no additional roles for spider-derived chymotrypsin inhibitors have been elucidated. In this study, a spider (Araneus ventricosus)...
