Meticulous and up-to-date, Proprotein Convertases represents an instructive and useful reference book for all scientists interested in endoproteolytic activation and\/or inactivation of secretory proproteins through limited proteolysis.   Abstract. The proprotein convertases (PCs) are secretory mammalian serine proteinases related to bacterial subtilisin-like enzymes. The family of PCs comprises nine members, PC1/3, PC2, furin, PC4, PC5/6, PACE4, PC7, SKI-1/S1P, and PCSK9 (Fig. ).While the first seven PCs cleave after single or paired basic residues, the last two cleave at non-basic residues and the last one PCSK9 only.

  Processing of VEGF-C and -D by the Proprotein Convertases: Importance in Angiogenesis, Lymphangiogenesis, and Tumorigenesis (Colloquium Protein Activation and Cancer): Medicine & Health Science Books @ The proprotein convertase PC2, one of the earliest convertases to evolve, plays an integral role in peptidergic signaling in organisms as diverse as flies and humans. More recent studies have elaborated the intricate interplay of PC2 and its binding protein 7B2 and suggest that there are unusual points of regulation for this enzyme in the.   Proprotein convertases in intercellular communication leading to inflammation and tumor progression The tumor microenvironment (TME) is a complex system including tumor cells, epithelial cells and stromal cells composed of immune cells, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, adipocytes, the extracellular matrix and others [ 34 ]. Proprotein convertase 1, also known as prohormone convertase, prohormone convertase 3, or neuroendocrine convertase 1 and often abbreviated as PC1/3 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the PCSK1 gene. PCSK1 and PCSK2 differentially cleave proopiomelanocortin and they act together to process proinsulin and proglucagon in pancreatic islets.

Each e-book. Background: The mammalian proprotein convertases (PCs) constitute a family of nine secretory serine proteases related to bacterial subtilisin and yeast kexin. Seven of them (PC1/3, PC2, furin, PC4, PC5/6, PACE4 and PC7) activate cellular and pathogen precursor proteins by cleavage at single or paired basic residues, while SKI-1/S1P and PCSK9 regulate cholesterol/lipid homeostasis via cleavage.
