IGF dependent modulation of IGF binding protein (IGFBP) proteolysis by pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A): multiple PAPP-A-IGFBP interaction sites

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A) is a local regulator of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) bioavailability in physiological systems, but many structural and functional aspects of the metzincin metalloproteinase remain to be elucidated. PAPP-A cleaves IGF binding protein (IGFBP)-4 and IGFBP-5. Cleavage of IGFBP-4, but not IGFBP-5, depends on the binding of IGF before proteolysis by PAPP-A can occur. The paralogue PAPP-A2 has two substrates among the six IGFBPs: IGFBP-3 and IGFBP-5.
