Researchers isolated the protein, a cysteine proteinase, from cultured tissue of resistant corn plants and obtained a patent last November for the gene sequence that encodes it.
By demonstrating that chemically unreactive groups linked to an appropriate affinity group can be employed in the design of potent and selective inactivators of powerfully nucleophilic cysteine proteinases, the concept of affinity labels was extended beyond the notion of reactive biochemical and pharmacological reagents to include compounds which now hold forth the possibility of practical clinical endpoints.
