|Protease constitute one of the primary targets in drug discovery. Many new ECP inhibitors are currently under clinical investigation and a significant increase in new therapies based on protease inhibition. Protease have evolved multiple times, and different classes of protease can perform same reactions by different catalytic mechanism. Protease can be found in animals, plants, bacteria, archea and viruses.
