Identifying the proteases and their inhibitors in vivo is an essential step in understanding their clinical relevance. For such analyses, we annotated the human and mouse protease genomes . The CLIP-CHIP™ is a complete protease and protease inhibitor DNA microarray chip for human and mouse, and includes 70-mer oligonucleotide probes for all 1561 human and murine proteases, inactive homologues and inhibitors [2,3].
