Gene: Pcsk9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pcsk9
Name: proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9
RGD ID: 728909
Description: Predicted to enable several functions, including lipoprotein particle binding activity; lipoprotein particle receptor binding activity; and serine-type endopeptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to insulin stimulus; cholesterol homeostasis; and protein autoprocessing. Located in extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hypercholesterolemia and hypobetalipoproteinemia. Orthologous to human PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1-(3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)piperazine; 1-benzylpiperazine.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: NARC-1; Narc1; neural apoptosis regulated convertase 1; neural apoptosis-regulated convertase 1; PC9; proprotein convertase 9; proprotein convertase PC9; subtilisin/kexin-like protease PC9
