Nod-like receptor family pyrin domain-containing 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome, a multiprotein complex consisting of NLRP3, apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing CARD (ASC), and cysteinyl aspartate-specific proteinase 1 (Caspase-1) controlling the release of interleukin-1 beta (IL-1[beta]), is strongly recognized to develop depression [5].

It contains 11 cysteinyl residues and binds four atoms of zinc or cadmium or six atoms of copper.
These effects are due, in part, to one or more cysteinyl residues found distal from the active site.
5-S-HETE is on its own a potent proinflammatory mediator [48] to induce stress conditions together with potent proinflammatory leukotrienes [LTB.sub.4] and the cysteinyl leukotrienes [LTC.sub.4] and [LTD.sub.4].
Cysteinyl aspartate-specific proteases (caspases) are highly conserved in multicellular organisms and function as central regulators of apoptosis.
Caspase-3, which belongs to the family of cysteinyl aspartate proteases, is the primary effecter in cell apoptosis [40].
Gaur et al., "Enhanced fracture repair by leukotriene antagonism is characterized by increased chondrocyte proliferation and early bone formation: a novel role of the cysteinyl LT-1 receptor," Journal of Cellular Physiology, vol.
Cysteinyl LT receptor antagonists such as Zafirlukast and montelukast are advocated for the treatment of bronchial asthma.
The inhibition of urease by Pd(II) compounds could be expected either due to replacement of enzymatic Ni2+ by Pd2+ (softer Lewis acid belonging to same group in the Periodic Table) or due to coordination of Pd2+ with softer Lewis bases (cysteinyl sulfur or histidine nitrogen) in the enzyme.
Montelukast, a selective cysteinyl leukotriene receptor 1 antagonist, reduces cerulein-induced pancreatic injury in rats.
