    ..These findings indicate that DPPI is not essential for mMCP-6 activation but does influence the total amount of active mMCP-6 in mast cells and therefore may be an important, but not exclusive mechanism for tryptase activation...

    ..However, because they are compound heterozygotes in a mixed genetic background and are infertile, they cannot be crossed easily with other mice...

    J Immunol 164:6566-75. 2000
    ..In summary, this work describes gamma-tryptases, which are novel members of chromosome 16p tryptase/prostasin gene families. Their unique features suggest possibly novel functions...
