More than a century ago, a German pathologist noted at autopsies of patients who had succumbed to acute pancreatitis that their intrapancreatic digestive enzymes had been activated.1 His fateful observation engendered the surprisingly long-lived belief that pancreatitis is an autodigestive phenomenon resulting from the inappropriate activation of digestive enzymes within the pancreas itself. The past three decades have seen the development of several animal models of pancreatitis and remarkably, early intracellular trypsinogen activation has been observed consistently during the course of pancreatitis in all of them.2-5 Subsequently, pancreatitis research began to focus on the mechanisms of premature intracellular trypsinogen activation. We and others have shown that premature trypsinogen activation takes place in membrane-bound compartments resembling autophagic vesicles within which zymogen and lysosomal contents are colocalised.6-9 In these colocalisation vacuoles, the lysosomal protease ...
Abstract:. Pancreatitis is an inflammatory disease that starts in pancreatic acinar cells and results in significant morbidity and mortality. Currently there is no therapy for pancreatitis because of lack of complete understanding of the disease mechanism. Premature trypsinogen activation is considered to be the key event in the disease development. However recent research in the field has pointed out that besides trypsinogen activation there are many other important factors that play important role in the disease. Our recent study in Trypsinogen-7 knock out (T7-/-) mice has supported this and for the first time shown that intra-acinar trypsinogen activation contributes only partially to acinar injury and local and systemic inflammation progress independently of trypsin activation during pancreatitis. NF-κB activation that happens parallel and independent to trypsinogen activation can still drive the development of the acute or chronic pancreatitis even in absence of trypsin.. 1. ...
We examined the clinical utility of urine trypsinogen-2 as a marker of acute pancreatitis (AP). Fifty-nine patients with AP, 42 with acute abdominal diseases of extrapancreatic origin, and 63 without evidence of acute abdominal disease were studied. Urine trypsinogen-2 was determined by a time-resolved immunofluorometric assay. As reference methods we used serum trypsinogen-2, urine amylase, and serum amylase. The diagnostic accuracy of the markers was evaluated by receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) analysis. At admission, urine trypsinogen-2 differentiated patients with AP from controls with high accuracy. The area under the ROC curve (AUC) was 0.978, which was equal to that of serum trypsinogen-2 (0.998) and serum amylase (0.969) and significantly larger than that of urine amylase. For differentiation between severe and mild AP, urine trypsinogen-2 (0.730) was equal to serum trypsinogen-2 (0.721), and clearly better than amylase in serum and urine. These results suggest that determination of

Aims: To investigate the immunoreactive trypsinogen (IRT) values above the usual 99th centile laboratory cut-off and determine the value of offering further testing to those infants with a markedly elevated IRT but no cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR) gene mutation identified by the screening programme.. Methods: All babies born in Victoria, Australia, between 1991 and 2003, were screened by IRT followed by CF gene mutation analysis.. Results: Of the 806 520 babies born, 9268 with the highest IRT levels had CFTR mutation analysis. There were 123 ΔF508 homozygotes and 703 heterozygotes (86 with CF, 617 carriers). A total of 8442 babies had no CFTR gene mutation, of whom 18 (0.21%) had CF. The total number of CF babies with IRT greater than the laboratory cut-off was 227 (2.4%). The IRT results of the CF patients were distributed normally, with the majority above the laboratory cut-off of newborn IRT results. There was no evidence of an excess of babies with CF in the very highest ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Functional effects of 13 Rare PRSS1 variants presumed to cause chronic pancreatitis. AU - Schnúr, Andrea. AU - Beer, Sebastian. AU - Witt, Heiko. AU - Hegyi, Péter. AU - Sahin-Tóth, Miklós. PY - 2014/2/1. Y1 - 2014/2/1. N2 - Objective: Hereditary pancreatitis is caused by mutations in human cationic trypsinogen (PRSS1) which lead to increased autoactivation by altering chymotrypsin C (CTRC)-dependent trypsinogen activation and degradation. Exceptions are some cysteine mutations which cause misfolding, intracellular retention and endoplasmic reticulum stress. Clinical relevance of many PRSS1 variants found in patients with sporadic chronic pancreatitis is unknown but often assumed by analogy with known disease-causing mutations. Functional comparison of PRSS1 variants found in sporadic and hereditary cases is needed to resolve this dilemma. Design: Here, we investigated the functional phenotype of 13 published PRSS1 variants with respect to autoactivation in the presence of ...

Hereditary pancreatitis is rare and affects fewer than one in one million people. It is a genetic abnormality that can be inherited or occur spontaneously.
The cause of acute pancreatitis in the majority of the cases is either alcohol abuse or gallstones. There are, however, other causes, such as hypertriglyceridemia, hypercalcemia, selected infections, obstructing pancreatic tumors, and trauma to the pancreas. Hereditary forms of acute pancreatitis have also been described due to mutations in the trypsinogen gene or the trypsin inhibitor gene. In addition, many medications have been associated with the development of acute pancreatitis. Selected examples are asparaginase, azathioprine, estrogens, furosemide, sulfonamides, tetracycline, and thiazide diuretics. The mechanism of pancreatic injury following ingestion of these medications may be related to hypersensitivity to the drug or accumulation of a toxic drug metabolite in the pancreas. In ...

Die akute Pankreatitis ist eine Entzündung der Bauchspeicheldrüse, die in der Mehrzahl der Fälle einen milden, selbst-limitierenden Verlauf, in selteneren Fällen jedoch eine schwere Verlaufsform mit hoher Mortalität nehmen kann. Die häufigsten Ursachen der akuten Pankreatitis sind Gallensteine, die zur Obstruktion der Gallenwege führen, sowie ein exzessiver Alkoholkonsum. Klinische und laborchemische Charakteristika dieser Erkrankung sind Oberbauchschmerzen sowie eine Erhöhung der pankreatischen Serumenzyme Lipase bzw. Amylase (auf das über dreifache der oberen Norm). Mittlerweile ist gut belegt, dass die frühesten pathophysiologischen Veränderungen der Pankreatitis in der Azinuszelle beginnen, wobei die vorzeitige Aktivierung von Trypsinogen eine Schlüsselrolle einnimmt. Die Trypsin-Aktivierung wiederum bewirkt eine kaskadenartige Aktivierung weiterer Proteasen, die schließlich zum zellulären Schaden und Untergang des Gewebes führen. Ein weiteres Charakteristikum ist die intrazelluläre

The two types of pancreatitis are mild pancreatitis and severe pancreatitis, which are separated based on whether their predominant response to cell injury is inflammation or necrosis, respectively. In mild pancreatitis there is inflammation and edema of the pancreas. In severe pancreatitis there are additional features of necrosis and secondary injury to extrapancreatic organs. Both types share a common mechanism of abnormal inhibition of secretion of zymogens and inappropriate activation of pancreatic zymogens inside the pancreas, most notably trypsinogen. Normally, trypsinogen is activated to trypsin in the duodenum where it assists in the digestion of proteins. During an acute pancreatitis episode there is colocalization of lysosomal enzymes, specifically cathepsin, with trypsinogen. Cathepsin activates trypsinogen to trypsin leading to further activation of other molecules of trypsinogen and immediate pancreatic cell death according to either the necrosis or apoptosis mechanism (or a mix ...
Endocytic vacuoles can be up to 10 μm in diameter and appear specifically in pathological conditions as a result of aberrant retrieval of structures formed by compound endocytosis [7]. The co-localization hypothesis of trypsinogen activation suggests intracellular/intra-organellar activation of trypsinogen and the formation of active (and potentially damaging) trypsin as a result of fusion of trypsinogen containing organelles with organelles containing lysosomal proteases (reviewed in [31]). In our previous study, we have indeed detected trypsin activity in the endocytic vacuoles and observed that some of the vacuoles have lysosomal markers [7]. In the present study, we specifically addressed the question about the role of SOCE in the formation of these vacuoles. The results of our experiments revealed that the SOCE-mediated Ca2+ plateaus produced by CCK or TLC-S (two commonly used inducers of experimental pancreatitis) are effectively suppressed by the Orai1 inhibitor GSK-7975A and that this ...
Enteropeptidase is a type II transmembrane serine protease (TTSP) localized to the brush border of the duodenal and jejunal mucosa and synthesized as a zymogen, proenteropeptidase, which requires activation by duodenase or trypsin.[9] TTSPs are synthesized as single chain zymogens with N-terminal propeptide sequences of different lengths. These enzymes are activated by cleavage at the carboxyl side of lysine or arginine residues present in a highly conserved activation motif. Once activated, TTSPs are predicted to remain membrane-bound through a conserved disulfide bond linking the pro- and catalytic domains.[10] In the case of cattle enteropeptidase the primary translation product comprises 1035 residues with an expected mass of 114.9kDa.[11] The detected apparent mass of about 160kDa is consistent with the specified carbohydrate content of 30 - 40%, with equal amounts of neutral and amino sugars.[12][13] The activation cleavage site after Lys800 splits the heavy and light chains of mature ...
This study is the first to find and validate variants in the PRSS1-PRSS2 locus associated with the risk of AAP in children with ALL. In doing so, we found that activation of trypsin within pancreatic acinar cells is a key initiating event in the pathogenesis of pancreatitis, regardless of the exposure i.e. alcohol, hyperlipidemia, or asparaginase. The role of trypsin activation in the pathogenesis of pancreatitis had long been suspected, but an underlying genetic susceptibility was not documented until 1996 when Whitcomb et al. documented mutations in the PRSS1 gene causing hereditary pancreatitis,29 and later associated a common genetic variant in the PRSS1-PRSS2 locus (rs10273639) with the risk of alcohol-related and sporadic pancreatitis.30 This association was recently validated in larger European and Asian cohorts, and the haplotype has been studied in detail.3331 rs10273639 is located 408 base pairs upstream of the translation initiation codon of cationic trypsinogen. A recent functional ...
We read with great interest the article by Rosendahl et al1 reporting the identification of CTRB1-CTRB2 (chymotrypsin B1 and chymotrypsin B2) as a new chronic pancreatitis (CP) risk locus by means of genome-wide association study, with the lead single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs8055167 having an OR of 1.35. Moreover, they found that a previously reported 16.6 kb inversion in the CTRB1-CTRB2 locus2 was in linkage disequilibrium with the CP-associated SNPs and optimally tagged by rs8048956. Furthermore, they provided in silico and in vivo evidence showing that the inversion variant changes the expression ratio of the CTRB1 and CTRB2 isoforms, the major risk allele being associated with increased CTRB1 and decreased CTRB2 mRNA expression as compared with the minor allele. Finally, they provided in vitro evidence that CTRB1 was less efficient in degrading anionic trypsinogen (PRSS2) than CTRB2 (note that rapid degradation of PRSS2 conferred by a PRSS2 missense variant protects against CP).3 ...
Acute pancreatitis is a common clinical inflammatory disease with variable severity from mild, self-limiting attacks to a severe lethal attack with a high mortality. In most of the cases, acute pancreatitis is either caused by gallstone obstruction or excessive alcohol consumption. Clinical symptoms include elevated levels (minimum 3 times than normal) of pancreatic enzymes such as amylase or lipase in serum. It is generally believed that earliest event in acute pancreatitis occur in acinar cells which includes premature protease activation and cytoplasmic vacuole formation. Premature trypsinogen activation has been considered as chief culprit as it can activate other proteases in a cascade like manner in acinar cells. Trypsin activity takes place in a biphasic curve with elevated levels at 1 h and 8 h in the initial stages up to 24 h in caerulein induced pancreatitis in mice. It has been shown that cytoplasmic vacuoles observed in pancreatitis are of autophagic nature. The role of autophagy for ...
Trypsin (EC 3.4.21.4) is a serine protease from the PA clan superfamily, found in the digestive system of many vertebrates, where it hydrolyses proteins.[2][3] Trypsin is produced in the pancreas as the inactive proenzyme trypsinogen. Trypsin cleaves peptide chains mainly at the carboxyl side of the amino acids lysine or arginine, except when either is followed by proline. It is used for numerousbiotechnological processes. The process is commonly referred to as trypsin proteolysis or trypsinisation, and proteins that have been digested/treated with trypsin are said to have been trypsinized.. Activation of trypsin from proteolytic cleavage of trypsinogen in the pancreas can lead to a series of events that cause pancreatic self-digestion, resulting in pancreatitis. One consequence of the autosomal recessive disease cystic fibrosis is a deficiency in transport of trypsin and other digestive enzymes from the pancreas. This leads to the disorder termed meconium ileus. This disorder involves ...

Currently, an effective targeted therapy for pancreatitis is lacking. Hereditary pancreatitis (HP) is a heritable, autosomal-dominant disorder with recurrent acute pancreatitis (AP) progressing to chronic pancreatitis (CP) and a markedly increased risk of pancreatic cancer. In 1996, mutations in PRSS1 were linked to the development of HP. Here, we developed a mouse model by inserting a full-length human PRSS1R122H gene, the most commonly mutated gene in human HP, into mice. Expression of PRSS1R122H protein in the pancreas markedly increased stress signaling pathways and exacerbated AP. After the attack of AP, all PRSS1R122H mice had disease progression to CP, with similar histologic features as those observed in human HP. By comparing PRSS1R122H mice with PRSS1WT mice, as well as enzymatically inactivated Dead-PRSS1R122H mice, we unraveled that increased trypsin activity is the mechanism for R122H mutation to sensitize mice to the development of pancreatitis. We further discovered that trypsin ...

Enterokinase is a protease of the intestinal brush border that specifically cleaves the acidic propeptide from trypsinogen to yield active trypsin. This cleavage initiates a cascade of proteolytic reactions leading to the activation of many pancreatic zymogens. The full-length cDNA sequence for bovine enterokinase and partial cDNA sequence for human enterokinase were determined. The deduced amino acid sequences indicate that active two-chain enterokinase is derived from a single-chain precursor. Membrane association may be mediated by a potential signal-anchor sequence near the amino terminus. The amino terminus of bovine enterokinase also meets the known sequence requirements for protein N-myristoylation. The amino-terminal heavy chain contains domains that are homologous to segments of the low density lipoprotein receptor, complement components C1r and C1s, the macrophage scavenger receptor, and a recently described motif shared by the metalloprotease meprin and the Xenopus A5 neuronal ...

Pancreatic gene transfer could be beneficial to treat many diseases, such as for example diabetes mellitus, cystic fibrosis, persistent pancreatitis, or pancreatic cancer. CMV-GFP reporter cassette, could actually transduce islet and acinar cells, but transgene appearance was dropped 15 times postinjection in relationship with serious lymphocytic infiltration. When HDAds encoding GFP beneath the control of the precise elastase promoter had been used, manifestation was recognized in acinar cells, but similarly, the manifestation almost disappeared thirty days postinjection and lymphocytic infiltration was also noticed. On the other hand, long-term transgene manifestation (>8 weeks) was accomplished with HDAds holding the insulin promoter as well as the secretable alkaline phosphatase as the reporter gene. Notably, transduction from the liver organ, the preferred focus on for adenovirus, was minimal by this path of delivery. These data reveal that HDAds could possibly be useful for pancreatic gene ...

SDS-PAGE was applied to determine trypsin activity and inhibition. After the hydrolysis by trypsin to substrate bovine serum albulnin (BSA) under different temperatures and pH, the hydrolysis degree of BSA was conducted using SDS-PAGE. From the quantitative analysis to the electrophoresis bands of BSA and its hydrolysis products in SDS-PAGE pattern, the change of trypsin activity was determined, and then the optimum temperature at 40°C and the optimum pH at pH 8.5 - 8.7 for trypsin activity were obtained. All the target bonds in BSA molecule could be hydrolyzed at the same time by trypsin. The inhibition was due to the binding of inhibitor to trypsin, which made it impossible for trypsin to touch the substrate protein. SDS-PAGE was demonstrated to be also an effect method for assaying the characteristics of trypsin activity and its inhibition.
The major function of the exocrine pancreas is to secrete an enzyme-rich fluid that degrades dietary proteins, lipids and polysaccharides and prepares them for further digestion and absorption. Proteolytic pancreatic enzymes are secreted in an inactive state and activated in the lumen of the small intestine by the action of the brush border enzyme enterokinase, which converts trypsinogen to trypsin. Trypsin in turn initiates separation of the other proteolytic enzymes from their inactive precursors.. Etiology and Pathogenesis. The cause of acute pancreatitis in dogs and cats is usually unknown. Potential risk factors, however, include obesity, high fat diets, malnutrition, hypertriglyceridemia, some drugs (thiazide diuretics, furosemide, azathioprine, L-asparaginase, corticosteroids, sulfonamides and tetracycline), toxins (organophosphates), hypercalcemia, duct obstruction, reflux of duodenal content into the pancreatic duct, pancreatic trauma, parasites (flukes) and pancreatic ...

Supplementary MaterialsSupplementary Information 41467_2018_7347_MOESM1_ESM. progression of persistent pancreatitis and therapy ought to be aimed against intra-pancreatic trypsin. Introduction The inflammatory diseases of the pancreas comprise acute pancreatitis, recurrent acute pancreatitis, and IL20RB antibody chronic pancreatitis, which form a disease continuum and have no specific therapy1. Development of acute pancreatitis and subsequent progression to chronic pancreatitis is often promoted by mutations in risk genes that encode digestive proteases or their inhibitor. Pathogenic variants in (cationic trypsinogen), (chymotrypsin C) and (serine protease inhibitor Kazal type 1) increase conversion of trypsinogen to injurious trypsin either by stimulating autoactivation or by interfering with the protective mechanisms of trypsin inhibition by SPINK1 and trypsinogen degradation by CTRC2. Inappropriately high levels of trypsin activity in the pancreas cause acinar cell injury and consequent ...

Assay Kits , Enterokinase Assay Kits , SensoLyte 520 Enterokinase Activity Assay Kit *Fluorimetric* ; Enterokinase is a heterodimeric serine protease produced by cells in the duodenal wall. It converts trypsinogen to trypsin, indirectly activating a number of pancreatic digestive enzymes. Enterokinase is a key enzyme for intestinal digestion of proteins. Its deficiency may cause severe protein malabsorption. Enterokinase also plays an important role in acute experimental and clinical pancreatitis. The high degree of specificity exhibited by enterokinase for cleaving affinity or other tags from recombinant proteins makes it an ideal tool for use in biochemical applications. The SensoLyte 520 Enterokinase Assay Kit is optimized for detecting activity of enterokinase. This kit employs a novel internally quenched 5-FAM/QXL FRET substrate for enterokinase. Enterokinase cleaves the FRET substrate into two separate fragments resulting in release of 5-FAM fluorescence which can be
Acute pancreatitis is believed to be triggered by an increase in the intraductal pressure or direct injury to acinar cells from metabolic or toxic stimuli which leads to breakdown of the junctional barrier between acinar cells and leakage of pancreatic fluid and enzymes into the interstitial space.5 Intrapancreatic activation of proteolytic enzymes leads to autophagy and autodigestion of acinar cells.6 Lysosomal enzymes such as cathepsin B initiate the activation of trypsinogen to trypsin which then leads to activation of more trypsin as well as other pancreatic enzymes including phospholipase, chymotrypsin, and elastase.7 The acinar tissue death leads to an intense systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes and mediated by cytokines, immunocytes, and the complement system. Inflammatory cytokines (such as tumor necrosis factor) cause macrophages to migrate into tissues distant from the pancreas, including lungs and kidneys. Immunocytes ...
From NCBI Gene: Enterokinase deficiencyFrom UniProt: Enterokinase deficiency (ENTKD): Life-threatening intestinal malabsorption disorder characterized by diarrhea and failure to thrive. [MIM:226200] From NCBI Gene: This gene encodes an enzyme that converts the pancreatic proenzyme trypsinogen to trypsin, which activates other proenzymes including chymotrypsinogen and procarboxypeptidases. The precursor protein is cleaved into two chains that form a heterodimer linked by a disulfide bond. This protein is a member of the trypsin family of peptidases. Mutations in this gene cause enterokinase deficiency, a malabsorption disorder characterized by diarrhea and failure to thrive.

AIM To determine whether pancreatitis associated protein (PAP) is a marker for cystic fibrosis which could be used in neonatal screening for the disease.. METHODS PAP was assayed on screening cards from 202 807 neonates. Babies with PAP ⩾ 15 ng/ml, or ⩾ 11.5 ng/ml and immunoreactive trypsinogen (IRT) ⩾ 700 ng/ml were recalled for clinical examination, sweat testing, and cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR) gene analysis.. RESULTS Median PAP value was 2.8 ng/ml. Forty four cases of cystic fibrosis were recorded. Recalled neonates (n=398) included only 11 carriers. A receiver operating characteristic curve analysis showed that PAP above 8.0 ng/ml would select 0.76% of babies, including all those with cystic fibrosis, except for one with meconium ileus and two with mild CFTR mutations. Screening 27 146 babies with both PAP and IRT showed that only 0.12% had PAP , 8.0 ng/ml and IRT , 700 ng/ml, including all cases of cystic fibrosis.. CONCLUSION PAP is increased in most neonates with ...

Prostasin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the PRSS8 gene. This gene encodes a trypsinogen, which is a member of the trypsin family of serine proteases. This enzyme is highly expressed in prostate epithelia and is one of several proteolytic enzymes found in seminal fluid. The proprotein is cleaved to produce a light chain and a heavy chain which are associated by a disulfide bond. It is active on peptide linkages involving the carboxyl group of lysine or arginine. The protein is implicated in epithelial sodium channel regulation and may help regulate a variety of tissue functions that involve a sodium channel.

Kidney, Transplant & Diabetes Research Australia (KTDRA) in partnership with The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) is thrilled to direct $330,000 to ensure six more pancreatic islet auto-transplants can take place at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH), saving the lives of people living with severe and hereditary pancreatitis.. Since 2015, thanks to support from KTDRA and partner THRF, five pancreatic islet auto-transplants have already been performed at the RAH, cementing it as the only hospital in Australia that offers this procedure. The procedure involves removing the diseased pancreas, then extracting the insulin-producing islet cells from the pancreas and re-infusing these back into the liver. This procedure treats the patients severe pancreatitis whilst also giving them back their islet cells to reduce their risk of developing diabetes.. Director of Kidney and Islet Transplantation at the RAH, Professor Toby Coates is grateful for the funding from THRF, which will ensure himself and his ...

目的:检测PRSS3-mRNA及lncRNA-PRSS3P2在甲状腺乳头状癌(papillary thyroid carcinoma,PTC)及癌旁甲状腺组织中的表达特点,探讨二者在PTC中表达的临床病理意义。方法:收集2016年7至10月本院55例PTC及癌旁甲状腺组织的新鲜手术标本,应用荧光实时定量PCR检测PRSS3-mRNA及lncRNA-PRSS3P2在PTC和癌旁组织中表达情况,并分析其与临床病理特征的相关性。结果:PRSS3-mRNA及lncRNA-PRSS3P2在PTC组织中表达均明显高于非肿瘤组织;PRSS3P2的表达与患者的年龄相关(P|0.05),而PRSS3与各种临床病理特征无明显相关性。结论:在PTC组织中,PRSS3-mRNA和lncRNA-PRSS3P2的表达均明显升高,这提示二者可能参与了PTC的发病过程;PRSS3-mRNA和lncRNA-PRSS3P2可以作为PTC的诊断标志物进行进一步研究。
