Proteinase inhibition using small Bowman-Birk-type structures
“Proteinase inhibition using small Bowman-Birk-type structures”, vol. 6, pp. 846-858, 2007.,
Bowman-Birk inhibitors (BBIs) are cysteine-rich and highly cross-linked small proteins that function as specific pseudosubstrates for digestive proteinases. They typically display a "double-headed" structure containing an independent proteinase-binding loop that can bind and inhibit trypsin, chymotrypsin and elastase.
