Furin from Human, Recombinant

Cat No.
NATE-0268
Description
Furin is a dibasic endoprotease that is localized in the Golgi apparatus. It is responsible for the proteolytic maturation of many precursor proteins in the secretory and endocytic pathways of mammalian cells. Furin is a dibasic endoprotease that is localized in the Golgi apparatus. It has a molecular mass of 52.7 kDa. It is responsible for the proteolytic maturation of many precursor proteins in the secretory and endocytic pathways of mammalian cells. Furin cleaves precursor proteins at their paired basic amino acid processing sites. Some substrates of furin include von Willebrand factor, transforming growth factor beta 1 precursor, pro-beta-secretase and proparathyroid hormone.
