Xenon Derivatives

Hello all,

I am aware that serine proteases seem to have a specific Xenon binding
site at the active site, as a few such cases have been reported.  I was 
wondering if anyone has heard if cysteine proteases, such as papain,
which have a very similar active site to the serine proteases, also have
a xenon-binding capability at the active site.   If so, which proteins 
are they?
