GeneCards Summary for LVRN Gene

LVRN (Laeverin) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is ERAP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LVRN Gene

  • Metalloprotease which may be important for placentation by regulating biological activity of key peptides at the embryo-maternal interface. On synthetic substrates it shows a marked preference for Leu-4-methylcoumaryl-7-amide (Leu-MCA) over Met-MCA, Arg-LCA and Lys-LCA. Cleaves the N-terminal amino acid of several peptides such as angiotensin-3, kisspeptin-10 and endokinin C.
