MBTPS1

MBTPS1

A gene on chromosome 16q24 that encodes a sterol-regulated subtilisin-like serine protease, which cleaves ER membrane-bound sterol regulatory element-binding proteins (SREBPs), releasing transcriptionally active SREBP fragments for translocation to the nucleus.

The membrane-bound transcription factor site-1 protease (MBTPS1) (also known as serine protease 1: S1P), a serine protease involved in SREBF1 activation, was predicted to be activated in all treatments as expected although not always in the top 20 (Inoue et al.

and former Research Associate Sophie Rutschmann showed how the gene Mbtps1 is linked to ulcerative colitis in mice.
The study revealed that crippling the protein product of the Mbtps1 gene makes mice prone to colitis.
