Cathepsin G

cathepsin G
The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the peptidase S1 protein family, is found in azurophil granules of neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes. The encoded protease has a specificity similar to that of chymotrypsin C, and may participate in the killing and digestion of engulfed pathogens, and in connective tissue remodeling at sites of inflammation. Transcript variants utilizing alternative polyadenylation signals exist for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Neutrophil-Derived Proteases Escalate Inflammation through Activation of IL-36 Family Cytokines.
Martin et al., Dublin, Ireland. In Cell Rep, Feb 2016
Here, we show that IL-36α, IL-36β, and IL-36γ are activated differentially by the neutrophil granule-derived proteases cathepsin G, elastase, and proteinase-3, increasing their biological activity ∼500-fold.

Lung inflammation promotes metastasis through neutrophil protease-mediated degradation of Tsp-1.
Mittal et al., New York City, United States. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, Jan 2016
Here, we show that extrinsic inflammation in the lungs leads to the recruitment of bone marrow-derived neutrophils, which degranulate azurophilic granules to release the Ser proteases, elastase and cathepsin G, resulting in the proteolytic destruction of the antitumorigenic factor thrombospondin-1 (Tsp-1).
Carboxyl-Terminal Cleavage of Apolipoprotein A-I by Human Mast Cell Chymase Impairs Its Anti-Inflammatory Properties.
Kovanen et al., Helsinki, Finland. In Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol, Jan 2016
APPROACH AND RESULTS: Activation of human mast cells triggered the release of granule-associated proteases chymase, tryptase, cathepsin G, carboxypeptidase A, and granzyme B. Among them, chymase cleaved apoA-I with the greatest efficiency and generated C-terminally truncated apoA-I, which failed to bind with high affinity to human coronary artery endothelial cells.

Li et al., Wuxi, China. In Zhonghua Lao Dong Wei Sheng Zhi Ye Bing Za Zhi, Aug 2015

Protease-activated receptor 4: a critical participator in inflammatory response.
Xie et al., Zhengzhou, China. In Inflammation, Apr 2015
The biological effect of PARs activated by coagulation proteases to regulate hemostasis and thrombosis plays an enormous role in the cardiovascular system, while PAR4 can also be activated by trypsin, cathepsin G, the activated factor X of the coagulation cascade, and trypsin IV.
Pathologic manifestations of levamisole-adulterated cocaine exposure.
Jen et al., San Francisco, United States. In Diagn Pathol, 2014
This discrepancy is due to the fact that p-ANCA seen in association with levamisole-adulterated cocaine exposure is often directed against atypical p-ANCA-associated antigens within the neutrophil granules such as human neutrophil elastase, lactoferrin, and cathepsin G. Biopsies of the skin lesions reveal leukocytoclastic vasculitis often involving both superficial and deep dermal vessels.

Is the neutrophil a 'prima donna' in the procoagulant process during sepsis?
Nagaoka et al., In Crit Care, 2013
For instance, DNA initiates the intrinsic pathway, histones are a strong generator of thrombin, and granule proteins such as neutrophil elastase, cathepsin G and myeloperoxidase contribute to the suppression of the anticoagulation systems.
