Abstract

Background: Proteinase 3 is an abundant serine protease with high similarity to neutrophil elastase and a major autoimmune target in systemic vasculitis. Results: We identified a monoclonal antibody that inhibits PR3 activity. Conclusion: PR3-inhibiting antibodies can change its conformation and impair interactions with β1-proteinase inhibitor. Significance: PR3-inhibiting antibodies may play a role in autoimmune vasculitis and could be exploited as highly selective inhibitors.
