The membrane-anchored serine protease prostasin (CAP1/PRSS8) supports epidermal development and postnatal homeostasis independent of its enzymatic activity. J Biol Chem. 2014;289:14740-9 pubmed publisher..This study provides the first demonstration that essential in vivo functions of prostasin are executed by a non-enzymatic activity of this unique membrane-anchored serine protease. ..
- Friis S, Sales K, Schafer J, Vogel L, Kataoka H, Bugge T. The protease inhibitor HAI-2, but not HAI-1, regulates matriptase activation and shedding through prostasin. J Biol Chem. 2014;289:22319-32 pubmed publisher..Taken together, these data indicate that HAI-1 regulates the activity of activated matriptase, whereas HAI-2 has an essential role in regulating prostasin-dependent matriptase zymogen activation. ..
