Unique Biochemical and Biological Features of Cathepsin D in Rodent Lymphoid Tissues
During the course of studies on lysosomes in rat thoracic duct lymphocytes (TDL), it was found that cathepsin D, a typical lysosomal enzyme in most cells and tissues, did not show the same distribution as the other lysosomal acid hydrolases after fractionation. In this paper, we report some of our findings concerning the unique properties of this rat TDL enzyme.
