    • Relevance

      Urokinase type plasminogen activator (uPA) is secreted from cells as a precursor which is activated to the two chain form consisting of an A and B chain. The active high MW form is further processed by removal of an amino terminal fragment to an active low MW form (35 kDa). uPA is a serine protease that activates plasminogen toplasmin. High levels of uPA and plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI 1) in breast cancer tissue extracts have been associated with rapid disease progression. The malignant phenotype of prostatic tumor cells correlates with the expression of both uPA and its cell membrane receptor (uPAR).
