Gene: Cpa3 (carboxypeptidase A3, mast cell) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cpa3
Name: carboxypeptidase A3, mast cell
Description: This gene encodes a member of the carboxypeptidase A family of zinc metalloproteases and preproprotein that is proteolytically processed to generate a mature protein product. This product is released by mast cells and may be involved in the degradation of endogenous proteins and the inactivation of venom-associated peptides. Homozygous knockout mice for this gene exhibit impaired mast cell development. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2015]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: mast cell carboxypeptidase A; MC-CPA; mMC-CPA
