Cathepsin B, H, L and D activities in liver lysosomes were compared between species. Although cathepsin B and D were detected in bovine, pig, chicken and rat liver, striking species differences were evident for cathepsin H and L. Cathepsin L activity was particularly high in chicken lysosomal extracts, but could not be detected in bovine and pig extracts. Whereas there was no significant cathepsin H activity in bovine extracts, rat liver lysosomal extracts contained large amounts of cathepsin H activity.
