Target

  • Function
    Furin 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 specificity
    Seems to be expressed ubiquitously.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase S8 family. Furin subfamily.
    Contains 1 homo B/P domain.
  • Domain
    Contains 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 localization
    Golgi 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.
