Description This gene can be found on chromosome 15 at location: 101844134-102029873.
Transcription The DNA sequence contains 23 exons and the transcript length: 4236 bps translated to a 968 residues protein.


Description PCSK6 is a member of the family of subtilisin-like proprotein convertases (PCs) that process precursor proteins at their paired basic amino acid processing sites (RXR). This protease undergoes an initial autocatalytic processing event in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to generate a heterodimer which exits the ER and sorts to the trans-Golgi network (TGN). In the TGN a second autocatalytic cleavage takes place in order to release an active PCSK6.
Expression PCSK6 is expressed in many tissues and encoded by different alternatively spliced mRNAs: the PACE4A-I form is secreted and expressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, kidney, pancreas, but at comparatively higher levels in the liver. Isoform PACE4A-II is secreted and at least expressed in placenta. Isoform PACE4B is secreted and was only found in the embryonic kidney cell line from which it was isolated. Isoforms PACE4C and PACE4D are located in ER (not secreted, remain probably inactive unprocessed form in endoplasmic reticulum) and expressed in placenta too. Isoforms PACE4E-I and PACE4E-II are probably retained intracellularly through a hydrophobic cluster in their C-terminus, and expressed in cerebellum (E-I and -II), placenta and pituitary (only E-I). The PACE4CS was also found to probably lack enzymatic activity.
Localisation PCSK6 is activated predominantly at the cell surface and able to process its substrates within the extracellular matrix and cell surface.
Function PCSK6 induce protein precursors cleavage at the R-X-(K/R)-R motif to release mature proteins. PCSK6 substrates include enzymes (ADAMTS-4 and ADAMTS-5), HIV accessory protein Vpr, NODAL, TGF-beta related proteins, proalbumin and von Willebrand factor. This protein is thought to play a role in tumor progression and left-right patterning.
Homology The PCSK6 catalytic domain has a high percentage of homology with those of the other PCs: 42% between PCSK6 and Furin.

Implicated in

Entity Breast cancer
Note Higher expression of PCSK6 has been detected in human breast cancer. There was a correlation between the amount of PACE4 gene product and estrogen receptor content.
Entity Prostate cancer
Note A recent study demonstrated that PSCK6 was highly overexpressed in prostate cancer tissues.
Entity Skin cancer
Note Transgenic expression of PACE4 in keratinocytes of the epidermal basal layer was more susceptible to chemical carcinogenesis, evidenced by increased tumor multiplicity, tumor volume, and metastasis.
Entity Association with degree of handedness
Note There is a significant association with a VNTR polymorphism in PCSK6 and handedness.
