Gene Family: Serpin peptidase inhibitors (SERPIN)

Also known as : "Serine (or cysteine) peptidase inhibitors"

Serpins: Serpins are a group of proteins with similar structures that were first identified as a set of proteins able to inhibit proteases. The acronym serpin was originally coined because many serpins inhibit chymotrypsin-like serine proteases (serine protease inhibitors). [Source: Wikipedia]
