Proteases in bacteria: Which?

Hi Bionetters,

trying to work out a propper protein purification I was just wondering 
which protease inhibitors would be appropriate. Using a trypsine inhi-
bitor for example does not seem to be reasonable to me, since bacteria 
probably don't have those acidic systems. I'm working with cyanobacteria
and prochlorophytes and made a literature research. However, no papers
had apparently been published in the last 10 years, dealing explicitely
with this matter. People usually use a cocktail” of different inhibitors
(if ever), but I would like to know which ones are really needed.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
