    at STAGE
  • a signal peptide, a proregion
  • a protease domain, which alone cleaves truncated procollagen VII within the short telopeptide region into fragments of similar size as the full-length enzyme does
  • an astacin-like protease domain
  • three CUB (protein interaction) domains
  • an EGF like domain between CUBII and CUBIII
  • a supplementary specific HIS domain in BMP1/HIS
  • C-terminal domains of BMP1 are important for substrate recognition and for controlling and restricting its proteolytic activity via exosite binding
  • mono polymer dimer
    isoforms Precursor cleaved at a consensus Arg-X-X-Arg to yield C terminus mature dimer

  • CATEGORY enzyme , signaling growth factor
    basic FUNCTION
  • acting as a procollagen C-proteinase that process the fibrillar collagen types I-III
  • zinc-dependent metalloproteinase that cleaves a variety of extracellular matrix substrates, including type I procollagen
  • may play an important role in the pathogenesis of myelofibrosis in primary myelofibrosis and are apparently induced by cytokines such as TGFbeta-1
  • might begin to cleave its substrates prior to secretion to the extracellular matrix
  • stimulates the conversion proapo A1 to its phospholipid- (PL-) binding form and it promotes formation of functional HDL and reverse cholesterol transport
  • play key roles in formation of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in vertebrates via biosynthetic processing of precursors into mature functional proteins involved in ECM assembly
  • play key roles in extracellular matrix formation, by converting precursors into mature functional proteins involved in forming the extracellular matrix
  • critically required for mature-collagen generation, downstream of osteoblast maturation, in bone

    a component
    small molecule metal binding,
  • Ca2+
  • Zn2+
  • protein
  • cleaving chordin, releasing BMP4 in its active form (effect of CHRD cleavage depends of CHRD level)
  • cleaving the gamma 2 chain (CAMG2) of laminin 5 complex facilitating basement membrane assembly in the dermal-epidermal junctions
  • interacting with BMP2 and BMP4 through prodomain (specifically binds and regulates signaling by bone morphogenetic proteins 2 and 4)
  • fibronectin binds BMP1-like proteinases and is an important determinant of the in vivo activity levels of BMP1-like proteinases
  • interacting with POSTN (periostin supported BMP1-mediated proteolytic activation of LOX on the extracellular matrix, which promoted collagen cross-linking)
  • cleaves IGFBP3 at a single conserved site, resulting in markedly reduced ability of cleaved IGFBP3 to bind IGF1 or to block IGF1-induced cell signaling
