Abstract

The behaviour of human urokinase and porcine kidney cell plasminogen activator towards some synthetic substrates has been investigated. Although N-benzyloxycarbonylglycylglycyl-L-arginine 4-methyl-7-coumarylamide (Z-Gly-Gly-Arg-Amc) (I), glutaryl-Gly-Arg-Amc (II) and Z-Gly-Gly-Arg -Val-OMe (III) were substrates, Boc-Gly-Gly-Arg-Val-Val-Gly-Gly-OEt (IV) and Z-Ala-Pro-Gly-Arg-Val-Val-Gly-Gly-OEt (V) were neither substrates nor inhibitors. Steady-state kinetic parameters for the hydrolysis of (II) and (III) by urokinase and porcine kidney cell plasminogen activator were similar. © 1984.
