Proteins group,

  I am working with a protein that I believe is a 
cathepsin homolog.  I am interested in testing 
the protein for protease activty.  There are several
flurogenic tripeptide analogs available yet I can 
not afford to purchase the entire gambit of reagents:
( Cathepsin B - K and papain like enzyme substrates )
Does any one know of a "Protease assay test kit"?
For example, a commerically available kit that provides
a small ammount of an assortment of protease substrates.
