In the previous ten years, a couple of lawsuits of symposia at the constitution and serve as of proteolytic enzymes were pub lished. Their insurance of acid proteases has been constrained, usually as a result of loss of major new info at the constitution of those enzymes. within the final 4 years, besides the fact that, the first and tertiary constructions of a few acid proteases were deter mined, prompting the necessity to speak about the meanings of the outdated info and the chances for brand spanking new experimentations. It used to be for this objective that the "Conference on Acid Proteases: constitution, functionality, and Biology" was once equipped. It came about on the collage of Oklahoma on November 21-24, 1976. This ebook is a set of the most lectures added on the convention. Acid Proteases, via definition refers to a gaggle of proteases having an optimum pH in acidic ideas. The vintage examples are pepsin and chymosin. a few catalytic positive aspects are patently shared by way of those proteases, such a lot particularly, their inhibition by way of pepstatin. using energetic center-directed inactivators corresponding to diazoacetyl norleucine methyl ester and 1,2-epoxy-3-(p-nitrophenoxy)propane has proven that catalytic aspartyl residues are found in almost all these enzymes. those obvious cornmon positive factors have brought on the advice through a number of investigators to call this staff of enzymes "aspartyl proteases" or "carboxyl proteases".
