Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TMPRSS11D Gene
This gene encodes a trypsin-like serine protease released from the submucosal serous glands onto mucous membrane. It is a type II integral membrane protein and has 29-38% identity in the sequence of the catalytic region with human hepsin, enteropeptidase, acrosin, and mast cell tryptase. The noncatalytic region has little similarity to other known proteins. This protein may play some biological role in the host defense system on the mucous membrane independently of or in cooperation with other substances in airway mucous or bronchial secretions.

GeneCards Summary for TMPRSS11D Gene
TMPRSS11D (Transmembrane Protease, Serine 11D) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include serine-type endopeptidase activity and peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is TMPRSS11A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TMPRSS11D Gene
May play some biological role in the host defense system on the mucous membrane independently of or in cooperation with other substances in airway mucous or bronchial secretions. Plays a role in the proteolytic processing of ACE2. Proteolytically cleaves and activates the human coronavirus 229E (HCoV-229E) spike glycoprotein which facilitate virus-cell membrane fusions; spike proteins are synthesized and maintained in precursor intermediate folding states and proteolysis permits the refolding and energy release required to create stable virus-cell linkages and membrane coalescence.
