HtrA serine peptidase 4

This gene encodes a member of the HtrA family of proteases. The encoded protein contains a putative signal peptide, an insulin growth factor binding domain, a Kazal protease inhibitor domain, a conserved trypsin domain and a PDZ domain. Based on studies on other related family members, this enzyme may function as a secreted oligomeric chaperone protease to degrade misfolded secretory proteins. Other human HtrA proteins have been implicated in arthritis, tumor suppression, unfolded stress response, apoptosis, and aging. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008] (from NCBI)

Nie et al., Australia. In J Clin Endocrinol Metab, Jul 2015
OBJECTIVES: The objectives of the study were to examine serine protease high-temperature requirement factor A4 (HtrA4) expression in the placenta and other human tissues and in early-onset vs late-onset PE, to determine serum HtrA4 levels in normal pregnancy and in PE subtypes, and to investigate the effect of high levels of HtrA4 on endothelial integrity and function.

Nie et al., Australia. In Plos One, 2013
Since HtrA1, HtrA3 and HtrA4 share identical domain organization, our results establish important foundations for developing potential therapeutics to target these HtrA proteins specifically for the treatment of a number of diseases, including cancer and pregnancy disorders.
