Mutant proinsulin that cannot be converted is secreted efficiently from primary rat beta-cells via the regulated pathway.


Prohormones are directed from the trans-Golgi network to secretory granules of the regulated secretory pathway. It has further been proposed that prohormone conversion by endoproteolysis may be necessary for subsequent retention of peptides in granules and to prevent their release by the so-called "constitutive-like" pathway. To address this directly… (More)
