Cutting at the right place--the importance of selective limited proteolysis in the activation of proproteinase E.
Barcelona, Spain. In Eur J Biochem, 1998
Its proform from the bovine pancreatic system has been structurally analyzed by X-ray crystallography for the intact native form, with a 11-residue N-terminal activation peptide, in a ternary complex with chymotrypsinogen C and procarboxypeptidase A [Gomis-Rüth, F. X., Gómez, M., Bode, W., Huber, R. & Avilés, F. X. (1995) The three-dimensional structure of the native ternary complex of bovine pancreatic procarboxypeptidase A with proproteinase E and chymotrypsinogen C, EMBO J. 14, 4387-4394].
Purification and properties of five different forms of human procarboxypeptidases.
Barcelona, Spain. In Eur J Biochem, 1989
Two of the procarboxypeptidases A, the A1 and A2 forms, are obtained in a monomeric state while the other, the A3 form, is obtained as a binary complex of a procarboxypeptidase A with a proproteinase E. This complex is stable in aqueous buffers at various ionic strengths and develops carboxypeptidase A and proteinase E activities in the presence of trypsin.
