The early history of intracellular cysteine proteinase inhibitors

Front Biosci (Elite Ed). 2010 Jun 1;2:793-5. doi: 10.2741/e139.


Scientists at the beginning of their careers often rely on the information obtained from review articles. Furthermore, the review articles are commonly used by sponsors in making their funding decisions of scientific projects. Thus it is very important to give a balanced view of the past as well as the present of the field discussed in those papers. In the present letter I wish to complement a review article previously published in Frontiers in Bioscience.
