Abstract
Analysis of the degradation products from two proteins, the insulin B-chain and human hemoglobin, generated by archaebacterial Thermoplasma acidophilum 20 S proteasomes, revealed an unexpectedly broad specificity. In spite of the vast number of different peptides found, they fell into a rather narrow size range. This suggests that a molecular ruler exists which determines the length of the cleavage products.
