Study of proteolytic enzymes involved in physiological and pathological processes.
Our proposal is to study different classes of proteolytic enzymes, aiming a better understanding of the participation of proteases in physiological and pathophysiological processes. We work mainly on the following topics:
- Plasmodium falciparum biology;
- Angiotensin I-converting enzyme;
- Cysteine cathepsins;
- Development of inhibitors.
