Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
PCSK9, FH3, HCHOLA3, LDLCQ1, NARC1, PC9, FH3; NARC-1; HCHOLA3; PC9; Proprotein convertase 9; Subtilisin/kexin-like protease PC9; Hypercholesterolemia, autosomal dominant 3; Neural apoptosis-regulated convertase 1;
Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), is an enzyme which in humans is encoded by the PCSK9 gene. This gene encodes a proprotein convertase belonging to the proteinase K subfamily of the secretory subtilase family. This protein plays a major regulatory role in cholesterol homeostasis. PCSK9 binds to the epidermal growth factor-like repeat A (EGF-A) domain of the low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR), inducing LDLR degradation. PCSK9 may also have a role in the differentiation of cortical neurons. Mutations in this gene have been associated with a rare form of autosomal dominant familial hypercholesterolemia (HCHOLA3).
