Developmental expression of a novel Kexin family protease, PACE4E, in the rat olfactory system

 PACE4 is a mammalian Kexin family protease that is involved in the maturation of precursor proteins. Four PACE4 isoforms have been identified. We identified a novel PACE4 isoform, PACE4E, from a human cerebellum cDNA library, which possesses a hydrophobic cluster in its C-terminus participating in membrane association. The size of PACE4E mRNA from adult… CONTINUE READING
