Technical Data
Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin Kexin 9, CT (Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin/kexin Type 9, PCSK9, FH3, Hypercholesterolemia Autosomal Dominant 3, HCHOLA3, LDLCQ1, Neural Apoptosis Regulated Convertase 1, NARC1, NARC-1, PC9, Proprotein Convertase PC9, PS
PCSK9 is a proprotein convertase belonging to the proteinase K subfamily of the secretory subtilase family. This protein is synthesized as a soluble zymogen that undergoes autocatalytic intramolecular processing in the endoplasmic reticulum. The protein may function as a proprotein convertase. The protein plays a role in cholesterol homeostasis and may have a role in the differentiation of cortical neurons.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
