proteolytic processing - (Oct/31/2007 )
Sorry for the dumb question but does proteolytic processing just mean how the protein is produced?...How it comes about? The process by which it is formed?
i think it specifically means how it is cleaved from a precursor protein by a protease or series of proteases.
After a protein is produced, it can undergo different proteolytic processing so that it goes from an inactive to an active state or vice versa.
protolytic for what? protein or another molecule!?
proteolytic = cuts protein
