An interesting inhibitor with a unique inhibition mechanism has been described for yeast proteinase A. This protease is located in the digestive vesicles of the yeast and its polypeptide inhibitor is located in the cytosol to prevent unwanted proteolysis. About half of the 68 inhibitor residues form a helix inside the substrate binding cleft thus stopping the proteolysis . 6 Perspectives inhibitor development against aspartic protease targets has blossomed. The growth of this ﬁeld in recent years has been dramatic considering that the ﬁrst amino acid sequence , the identiﬁcation of active site aspartic acid residues , the ﬁrst crystal structures [5, 6], and the discovery of the ﬁrst transition-state isostere of aspartic proteases  were all done in the 1970s.
A wide variety of aspartic proteinases were used and the resulting changes in absorbance determined. A simple plot of the rate of absorbance change against the P1 or P0 1 amino acid showed the optimal amino acid for those two positions. While Phe was the most common optimal residue for both the P1 and P0 1 positions, a number of enzymes preferred other amino acids. For example, plasmepsin 2 from the malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum prefers Leu in P1, while human gastricsin prefers Trp in P1.
