|Abstract||A group of leupeptin analogues was found in Streptomyces griseus strain 254, isolated from a soil sample from Fujian Province, China. The inhibitors excreted in the culture filtrate were purified by adsorption on macroporous resin, followed by sequential ion exchange chromatography on DEAE-52 cellulose, CM-32 cellulose and affinity chromatography with immobilized trypsin. The preparation thus obtained was further purified by preparative HPLC. Several major components were found and characterized, which possessed different inhibitory properties toward trypsin. Based upon amino acid and mass spectrophotometric analysis, these peptides were placed in four major structural categories, viz., R-Val-Val-argininal, R-Leu-Leu-argininal, R-Ile-Ile-argininal and R-Thr-Thr-argininal, this latter component representing a newly identified leupeptin analogue. The structural variability of the R-group was partly responsible for the multiplicity of the peaks obtained with HPLC. All peptides displayed varying degrees of inhibitory activity toward proteases involved in blood coagulation and fibrinolysis, including plasmin, factor Xa, activated protein C and thrombin. Among these peptide inhibitors, the molecule containing threonine showed the strongest inhibitory activity.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
