P8077_cutsite

Furin is a recombinant, ubiquitous subtilisin-like proprotein convertase with a minimal cleavage site of Arg-X-X-Arg˅. However, the enzyme prefers the site Arg-X-Lys/Arg-Arg˅. 

  • It is the major processing enzyme of the secretory pathway and is localized in the trans-golgi network
  • Substrates of Furin include blood clotting factors, serum proteins and growth factor receptors such as the insulin-like growth factor receptor

  • Product Information
    Furin is a ubiquitous subtilisin-like proprotein convertase. It is the major processing enzyme of the secretory pathway and is localized in the trans-golgi network (1,2). Substrates of Furin include blood clotting factors, serum proteins and growth factor receptors such as the insulin-like growth factor receptor (3). The minimal cleavage site is Arg-X-X-Arg'. However, the enzyme prefers the site Arg-X-(Lys/Arg)-Arg'. An additional arginine at the P6 position appears to enhance cleavage (4). Furin is inhibited by EGTA, α1- Antitrypsin Portland (5) and polyarginine compounds (6).

    Product Source

    Isolated from Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf9) cells infected with recombinant baculovirus carrying truncated human furin (kindly provided by R. Fuller) (3).
