Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

Reverse screening: A greatly simplified primary screening of protease specificity has been achieved by monitoring the fluorescence during the protease-catalyzed coupling of amino acids instead of peptide hydrolysis on a solid support (see picture, AA=amino acid). This approach paves the way for flexible, rapid, high-throughput identification and characterization of proteases without the need for expensively labeled peptide arrays.
