elastase

Serine protease that will digest elastin and collagen Type IV; inhibited by alpha-1-protease inhibitor of plasma.

Elastase

Elastase: An enzyme that digests and degrades a number of proteins including elastin, an elastic substance in the lungs and some other organs that supports their structural framework. Elastase is specifically inhibited by alpha-1 antitrypsin. See also: Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.

Elastase

In molecular biology, elastase is an enzyme from the class of proteases (peptidases) that break down proteins. == Forms and classification== Eight human genes exist for elastase: Some bacteria (including Pseudomonas aeruginosa) also produce elastase. In bacteria, elastase is considered a virulence factor. == Function == Elastase breaks down elasti...
