The fifth foreign convention on Aspartic Proteinases was once hung on September 19 via 24, 1993, at Naito Museum of Pharmaceutical technology and undefined, Kawashima­ cho, Gifu Prefecture, Japan, approximately 15 miles northwest of Nagoya urban. approximately a hundred scientists attended the convention, together with fifty two from 14 international locations open air Japan, and 32 papers have been provided by means of invited audio system, and fifty eight papers as posters. the aim of this convention was once to provide and talk about new details at the constitution, functionality, and biology, and similar subject matters, together with biomedical implications, of aspartic proteinases, and this booklet is a collec­ tion of approximately the entire papers awarded on the assembly. Aspartic proteinases belong to at least one of the 4 significant periods of proteinases, the others being serine, cysteine, and metalloproteinases, and are so referred to as seeing that they've got catalytic aspartic acid residues in universal of their lively websites. so much of them are optimally lively at acidic pH, consequently the long-used identify "acid proteinases," which, certainly, used to be the key identify of the 1st convention of this sequence. notwithstanding, a few of them are energetic at round impartial pH, indicating their physiological roles in a much wider diversity of pH than hitherto considered.
