Abstract

A low molecular weight inhibitor of the thiol proteases papain and bromelain has been identified and partially purified from the culture filtrates of . Further studies have shown that this inhibitor reacts with compounds containing a free thiol group and as such it is capable of inhibiting other enzymes that contain a functional thiol group at their active site.
