PRSS7 Responsible for initiating activation of pancreatic proteolytic proenzymes (trypsin, chymotrypsin and carboxypeptidase A). It catalyzes the conversion of trypsinogen to trypsin which in turn activates other proenzymes including chymotrypsinogen, procarboxypeptidases, and proelastases. Defects in TMPRSS15 are a cause of enterokinase deficiency (ENTKD); a life-threatening intestinal malabsorption disorder characterized by diarrhea and failure to thrive. Belongs to the peptidase S1 family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
