  • Posttranslational processing can be a key regulatory step in determining the quantity and types of products derived from precursors to biologically active peptides. 1-4 Although the “limited proteolysis” involved in this maturation process usually occurs at double basic residues within the parent molecule, there are exceptions to this rule.5 Adding additional complexity is the fact that these reactions are often tissue-specific and that they can occur in an intraor extra-cellular manner.6… CONTINUE READING
