Inhibition Of An Endogenous Growth‐related Proteinase Enhances The Recovery Of A Negative Growth Regulator From Cultured Human Cells.
Published 1993 · Medicine, Biology
The possibility that a growth‐related proteinase may act by degrading a negative growth regulatory protein has been investigated. Proteinase inhibitors which inhibit the enzyme also enhance the accumulation of the growth regulator by human fibroblasts. The negative growth regulator shows a similar specificity of inhibition of cellular growth to inhibitors of the growth‐related proteinase.
