    SARS-CoV-2 entry into human airway organoids is serine protease-mediated and facilitated by the multibasic cleavage site

    Anna Z Mykytyn et al.
    Whereas SARS-CoV-2 utilizes cathepsins to enter most cell lines, human airway organoids revealed that entry into relevant cells is dependent on serine proteases, which can be targeted for treatment.

    The serine protease hepsin mediates urinary secretion and polymerisation of Zona Pellucida domain protein uromodulin

    Martina Brunati et al.
    Hepsin is the first protease identified to modulate specific cleavage and secretion of a Zona Pellucida domain protein, uromodulin.

    N-glycosylation in the protease domain of trypsin-like serine proteases mediates calnexin-assisted protein folding

    Hao Wang et al.
    N-glycans commonly present in the protease domains are required for calnexin-mediated protein folding and intracellular trafficking.

    Ripply2 recruits proteasome complex for Tbx6 degradation to define segment border during murine somitogenesis

    Wei Zhao et al.
    Inducing presomitic mesoderm (PSM)-fated ES cells clarified that Ripply2 directly interacts with Tbx6 and degrades Tbx6 in proteasome-ubiquitin pathway by recruiting the 26S proteasome, which is a PSM-specific event to define the segment border during mouse somitogenesis.

    A widespread family of serine/threonine protein phosphatases shares a common regulatory switch with proteasomal proteases

    Niels Bradshaw et al.
    Structures of active and inactive conformations of a PP2C family phosphatase reveal a conserved switch that controls enzymatic activity and point to an unexpected relationship between phosphatases and proteasomal proteases.
