  • You currently have no access to view or download this content
  • In addition to original research reports, authoritative reviews written by leading researchers in the field keep you informed about the latest advances in the molecular life sciences
  • Cells from several of the hematopoietic cell lineages including mast cells, basophils, neutrophils, cytotoxic T cells, and natural killer cells store proteases at very high levels within their cytoplasmic granules. In mast cells, these proteases can account for up to 35% of the total cellular protein, and the absolute majority of these belong to the chymotrypsin-related serine protease family
