  • cystein proteases

General information

  • Cysteine proteases also known as thiol proteases are enzymes that degrade polypeptides. These proteases share a common catalytic mechanism that involves a nucleophilic cysteine thiol in a catalytic dyad.
  • A potent inhibitor of cystein proteases are the cystatins. They bind adjacent to the protease active site, obstructing the access of substrate. [1]
