Carboxy-terminal proteolytic processing at a consensus furin cleavage site is a prerequisite event for quail ZPC secretion.


In avian species, a glycoprotein homologous to mammalian ZPC is synthesized in the granulosa cells of developing follicles. We have previously reported that the newly synthesized ZPC (proZPC) in granulosa cells is cleaved at a consensus furin cleavage site to generate mature ZPC prior to secretion. In the present study, we examined the effect of the… (More)
