Proteinases and their Inhibitors: Structure, Function, and Applied Aspects documents the proceedings of an international symposium organized by the Department of Biochemistry, Jozef Stefan Institute, E. Kardelj University, Ljubljana, and the Department of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Zagreb, held in Portoroz, Yugoslavia, September 29-October 3, 1980. The volume contains 34 papers that are organized into four parts. Part I on biological functions includes studies such as muscle protein breakdown in human catabolic state and age-dependent changes in intracellular protein turnover. The papers in Part II, which deals with properties and structure of enzymes, cover topics such as structures and biological functions of cathepsin B and L; and human erythrocytes peptidases. Part III is devoted to industrial applications, such as exogenous proteinases in dairy technology and the application of immobilized proteinases. Part IV on proteinase inhibitors includes papers on thiol inhibitors of proteases and and intracellular neutral proteinases and inhibitors.
The papers in this volume provide new data, concepts, and visions which will not only prove useful, but will also stimulate further investigations of proteinases and their inhibitors.
