Human eosinophil-derived neurotoxin (EDN), a secretory protein from eosinophils, is a member of the RNase A superfamily. The ribonucleolytic activity of EDN is central to its biological activities. EDN binds RNA in a cationic cleft, and the interaction between EDN and RNA substrate extends beyond...
Secreted aspartic proteinases (Sap) play a role in the virulence of pathogenic Candida spp. Candida parapsilosis possesses three genes encoding these enzymes: SAPP1 , SAPP2 , and SAPP3 . We analyzed the expression of the SAPP1 and SAPP2 genes and the production of Sapp1p and Sapp2p proteinases in...
