KnockoutIn mice, disruption of the gene led to profound histochemical and ultrastructural changes in intestinal mucosal mast cell granules (Wastling et al., 1998).
Pharmaceutical relevanceChymase inhibitors showed promise for the prevention of post-operative adhesions in a hamster model (Okamoto et al., 2004; Soga et al., 2004). Also, a chymase inhibitor prevented the development of abdominal aortic aneurysm in a hamster experimental model (Tsunemi et al., 2004).
