  • Additional notes


    This peptide may be used for neutralization and control experiments with the polyclonal antibody that reacts with this product and furin convertase, catalog ab3467. Using a solution with equal weights per unit volume of peptide and corresponding antibody will yield a solution with a large molar excess of peptide that is able to competitively bind the antibody.

  • FunctionFurin is likely to represent the ubiquitous endoprotease activity within constitutive secretory pathways and capable of cleavage at the RX(K/R)R consensus motif.
  • Tissue specificitySeems to be expressed ubiquitously.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase S8 family. Furin subfamily.
    Contains 1 homo B/P domain.
  • DomainContains a cytoplasmic domain responsible for its TGN localization and recycling from the cell surface.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The inhibition peptide, which plays the role of an intramolecular chaperone, is autocatalytically removed in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and remains non-covalently bound to furin as a potent autoinhibitor. Following transport to the trans Golgi, a second cleavage within the inhibition propeptide results in propeptide dissociation and furin activation.
    Phosphorylation is required for TGN localization of the endoprotease. In vivo, exists as di-, mono- and non-phosphorylated forms.
  • Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network membrane. Cell membrane. Shuttles between the trans-Golgi network and the cell surface. Propeptide cleavage is a prerequisite for exit of furin molecules out of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). A second cleavage within the propeptide occurs in the trans Golgi network (TGN), followed by the release of the propeptide and the activation of furin.
