Moreover proteolytic enzymes have also been reported to be important in the general process of intracellular protein catabolism essential for the normal functioning of cells in all tissues (Pennington, 1977; Turner, 1986; Anonymous, 1990), and may also have additional specialized functions such as their role in the metabolism of neurotransmitter oligopeptide within the nervous system (Turner, 1986), degeneration and regeneration in rat soleus muscle induced by venom from three subspecies of Doboia russelli (Faiz et al.
