Dr. Carlos Salas

Associate Professor, Institute of Biological Sciences, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil
Dr. Carlos Salas's group focuses on a group of cysteine proteinases from the edible fruit of V cundinamarcensis. Its anti-inflammatory and wound healing activities have been confirmed in different wound models. Skin and gastric lesions respond favorably to treatment with the proteolytic fraction in line with the ethnopharmacologic use by aborigines from South America. The healing activity of the fraction includes lesions induced in corneal surface. More...
Speech Title: Application of plant proteolytic cysteinases: their anti-inflammatory activity is relevant to healing improvement?
Abstract: Two plant proteolytic enzymes: bromelain (A comosus) and papain (C. papaya), are well studied and there is abundant literature describing their applications. Both, papain and bromelain are composed by several isoforms. The lactiferous species Vasconcellea cundinamarcensis (ex Carica candamarcensis), native to Latin America, source of edible fruit, belongs to the Caricaceae family. Like papain and bromelain, holds a set of isomorphous proteolytic enzymes in its latex; its role has been associated to plant protection against predation. More...
