Gene: PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PCSK9
Name: proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9
Description: Exhibits several functions, including lipoprotein particle receptor binding activity; molecular function regulator; and serine-type endopeptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including cholesterol homeostasis; low-density lipoprotein particle receptor catabolic process; and regulation of endocytosis. Localizes to several cellular components, including the PCSK9-AnxA2 complex; PCSK9-LDLR complex; and endosome. Implicated in hypobetalipoproteinemia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
