Trypsin inhibitor is thermolabile and its inhibitory activity can be reduced considerably by thermal treatment (Liener, 1994).
Figure 5 shows loss of tight-junctions and hyperpermeability in vascular endothelial cells induced by proinflammatory cytokines and their rescue by treatment with trypsin inhibitor. The addition of TNF-[alpha], IL-6, and IL-1[beta] to the cell culture and examination after 12 h showed marked down-regulation of tight-junction protein zonula occludens-1 (ZO-1) and slight decrease in occludin levels, and the loss of these proteins was abrogated by treatment with 50 [micro]M aprotinin (Fig.
