Abstract

Human neutrophil elastase (HNE) is a serine protease implicated in the pathogenesis of acute and chronic inflammatory disease. Here a series of, internally quenched, single fluorophore fluorescent reporters were synthesised that allowed the rapid, highly specific and sensitive analysis of HNE activity over closely related proteases.
