  • Publication number: 20220090041
    Abstract: The present invention relates to protease variants, having improved properties compared to the parent protease, in particular variants of a serine protease belonging to family 53 derived from a strain of Meripilus giganteus. The variants according to the invention have in particular increased thermo-stability, e.g., increased residual activity after 30 min at a temperature in the range from 55 to 60° C. and/or increased thermal denaturation temperature, compared to the parent Meripilus giganteus protease. The present invention also relates to polynucleotides encoding the variants; nucleic acid constructs, vectors, and host cells comprising the polynucleotides; and methods of using the variants.

  • Publication number: 20210380667
    Abstract: Disclosed are protease inhibitors capable of inhibiting the protease activity of a S1 or a S8 protease at ambient pH, but where the inhibitor further has a pH dependent binding to the S1 or the S8 inhibitor meaning that a complex of a S1 and a S8 protease and the inhibitor dissociates when pH is lowered to a pH below 6.0, e.g. to a pH value in the range of 4.0 to 6.0; e.g. in the range of 4.5 to 6.0; e.g. in the range of 4.5 to 5.5; whereby the protease activity is released.
