This gene encodes an enzyme that converts the pancreatic proenzyme trypsinogen to trypsin, which activates other proenzymes including chymotrypsinogen and procarboxypeptidases. The precursor protein is cleaved into two chains that form a heterodimer linked by a disulfide bond. This protein is a member of the trypsin family of peptidases. Mutations in this gene cause enterokinase deficiency, a malabsorption disorder characterized by diarrhea and failure to thrive.
PRSS7 has several biochemical functions, for example, scavenger receptor activity, serine-type endopeptidase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by PRSS7 itself. We selected most functions PRSS7 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with PRSS7. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
