Description

proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 1 inhibitor

Gene Summary

The protein encoded by this gene functions as an inhibitor of prohormone convertase 1, which regulates the proteolytic cleavage of neuroendocrine peptide precursors. The proprotein is further processed into multiple short peptides. A polymorphism within this gene may be associated with obesity. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
