HTRA3 (HtrA Serine Peptidase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include serine-type endopeptidase activity and endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is HTRA1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HTRA3 Gene
Serine protease that cleaves beta-casein/CSN2 as well as several extracellular matrix (ECM) proteoglycans such as decorin/DCN, biglycan/BGN and fibronectin/FN1. Inhibits signaling mediated by TGF-beta family proteins possibly indirectly by degradation of these ECM proteoglycans (By similarity). May act as a tumor suppressor. Negatively regulates, in vitro, trophoblast invasion during placental development and may be involved in the development of the placenta in vivo. May also have a role in ovarian development, granulosa cell differentiation and luteinization (PubMed:21321049, PubMed:22229724).
