PCSK6

PCSK6

A gene on chromosome 15q26.3 that encodes a broadly active endoprotease of the peptidase S8 family involved in the constitutive secretory pathway in both neuroendocrine and non-neuroendocrine tissues. It cleaves the RX(K/R)R consensus motif. Each PACE4/PCSK6 isoform (PACE4A-I, PACE4A-II, PACE4B, PACE4C, PACE4D, PACE4E-I and PACE4E-II) has a unique restricted distribution.

Disrupting gene PCSK6 in mice causes 'left-right asymmetry' defects, such as abnormal positioning of organs in the body.
Bead set C contained 7 multiplexed antisera, including 2 antisera contained in bead set B [oxoglutarate dehydrogenase-like (OGDHL), proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin 6 (PCSK6)].
ASPN and coagulation factor V (F5) were assayed on multiplexed bead set B and PCSK6 on multiplexed bead set C.
