The cells were then treated with 1 ml of a 1% solution of Triton X-100 (containing 5 [micro]g/ml each of antipain, pepstatin, and leupeptin as well as 1 mM phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride) and kept at on ice for 20 min.
Samples to be analyzed for protease-sensitive PrP (PrPsen) contained the following protease inhibitors: 10 [micro]mol/L leupeptin, 1 [micro]mol/L pepstatin A, and 1 [micro]g/mL aprotinin.

ECI's hypothesis is that ECI characterized Protector Proteins alphaA-Crystallin, gammaD-Crystallin and the chimeric protein, pepstatin /leupeptin/alphaA-Crystallin, will inhibit the proteolytic enzymes secreted by the host and the pathogen, thus serving as a good therapeutic agent against the management of microbial keratitis.
