5). Hypothetically, one of these pathways includes removal of the propeptide, leading to processing of carbohydrates into some complex forms, while the other one involves protein with retained propeptide resulting in conservation of high mannose oligosaccharides only (Fig. 5). 28 Urban Gullberg et al. S Is Sorting Dependent on Processing? Constitutive secretion of both lysosomal and azurophil granule proteins seems to be limited to unprocessed proforms. Therefore, recognition for sorting to granules could be specific for processed forms and processing would then be a prerequisite for sorting to granules.

A 125 amino acid aminoterminal propeptide, a small peptide between the light and heavy chains, as well as a single serine residue of the carboxy terminus are each excised during processing of proMPO into mature MPO. Similar to the maturation of serine proteases, proteolytic processing occurs in post-endoplasmic reticulum (post-ER) compartments, but mature MPO has been found to be sensitive to digestion with endoglycosidase H (Endo H), indicating Urban Gullberg et al. 26 - light heavy propeptide subunit ((3) subunit (11) Translocation into ER Cleavage of signal peptide signal peptide ERI Goigi Acquisition of N·linked carbohydrates which are partially processed into complex forms oli osaccharides [.
