  • a Results from the FWGA techniques are reported as relative fluorescence units (F), and results from the LAMC assay are reported as both fluorescence units and velocities (V; μmol cm−2 h−1). Significance refers to the difference in protease activity between −N and +N treatments within each method. ND, not determined.
