Biosynthesis of the prohormone convertase mPC1 in AtT-20 cells.


A new family of mammalian subtilisin-like enzymes, probably involved in the processing of proproteins in regulated and constitutive cells at paired basic residues, has recently been discovered. Little information exists as yet concerning the biosynthesis of these endogenous subtilisin-like enzymes. In the present work the biosynthesis and release of the… (More)
