Staphylokinase (Sak), a single-chain protein comprising 136 amino acids with NH2-terminal sequence,SSSFDKGKYKKGDDA forms a complex with plasmin, that is endowed with plasminogen activating properties. Plasmin is presumed to process mature (high molecular weight, HMW) Sak to low molecular weight derivatives (LMW-Sak), primarily by hydrolyzing the Lys10-Lys11(More)
Genes that have been designated the name "MUC" code for proteins comprising mucin domains. These proteins may be involved in barrier and protective functions. The first such gene to be characterized and sequenced is the MUC1 gene. Here we report a novel small protein derived from the MUC1 gene by alternative splicing that does not contain the hallmark of(More)
