Specifications

Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Goat Affinity Purified B
PCSK9 is a serine protease of the protein convertase family having profound effects on plasma low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol (LDL-C) levels through its ability to mediate LDL receptor (LDLR) protein degradation. The protein slows down the uptake of cholesterol by degrading LDLR after they have internalized LDL and thus plays a significant role in cholesterol homeostasis. PCSK9 also potentially averts excessive cholesterol accumulation within the cell by preventing the recycling of LDLRs to the cell surface. Structurally, the protein includes a signal peptide, followed by a prodomain, a subtilisin-like catalytic domain, and a variable C-terminal domain. The prodomain serves a dual role as a chaperone for folding and as an inhibitor of catalytic activity. Human PCSK9 gene is localized in the chromosomal region 1p32.3. Several mutations (p.S127R, p.F216L, p.D374Y) of this gene have been reported to cause hypercholesterolemia.
