FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the subtilisin-like proprotein convertase family, which includes proteases that process protein and peptide precursors trafficking through regulated or constitutive branches of the secretory pathway. The encoded protein undergoes an initial autocatalytic processing event in the ER to generate a heterodimer which exits the ER and sorts to the cis/medial-Golgi where a second autocatalytic event takes place and the catalytic activity is acquired. It encodes a type 1 membrane bound protease which is ubiquitously expressed and regulates cholesterol or lipid homeostasis via cleavage of substrates at non-basic residues. Mutations in this gene may be associated with lysosomal dysfunction. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2014]

The muskrat phenotype was identified among G3 mice of the pedigree R6617, some of which showed black and gray coat colors (Figure 1).
|Nature of Mutation|
Whole exome HiSeq sequencing of the G1 grandsire identified 39 mutations. The coat color phenotype was linked to a mutation in Mbtps1: a C to T transition at base pair 119,538,137 (v38) on chromosome 8, or base pair 20,689 in the GenBank genomic region NC_000074. Linkage was found with a recessive model of inheritance (P = 5.716 x 10-8), wherein six affected mice were homozygous for the variant allele, and 41 unaffected mice were either heterozygous (N = 19) or homozygous for the reference allele (N = 22) (Figure 2). A substantial semidominant effect was also observed (P = 1.231 x 10-7).
The mutation corresponds to residue 1,609 in the mRNA sequence NM_019709 within exon 9 of 24 total exons.
The mutated nucleotide is indicated in red. The mutation results in a proline to serine substitution at position 341 (P341S) in the Site 1 protease (S1P) protein, and is strongly predicted by Polyphen-2 to cause loss of function (score = 1.000).

Gene & Protein
Mbtps1 encodes Site 1 protease (S1P; alternatively, subtilisin-kexin-isoenzyme 1 [SKI-1]). S1P is a type I transmembrane protein with its N-terminal proteolytic domain projecting into the ER lumen. It contains 1,052 amino acids, comprising a signal peptide (amino acids 1-17), a prosegment (amino acids 18-186), and a catalytic protease domain (amino acids 218-414) (Figure 3) (1). Asp218, His249 and Ser414 comprise the active site catalytic triad (1). Asn338 of S1P forms part of an oxyanion hole, which serves to stabilize the transition state and thereby lower the activation energy of the peptide cleavage reaction. S1P has an extended C-terminal region after the catalytic domain with unknown function (amino acids 415-1052). This region contains a conserved growth factor/cytokine receptor family motif (amino acids 849-861), followed by a putative 24-amino acid hydrophobic transmembrane segment, and a highly basic C-terminal tail that may regulate cellular localization (1;2).
S1P is a zymogen activated by autocatalytic cleavage of its prosegment in the ER. First, a signal peptidase removes the signal peptide by cleavage at the sequence LVVLLC17↓GKKHLG resulting in S1P-A (amino acids 18-1052), which is inactive (3;4). Then, sequential autocatalytic cleavages at R134SLK137↓YA and R183RLL186↓RA occur to generate the active S1P-B (amino acids 138-1052) and S1P-C (amino acids 187-1052), respectively, plus the major ~24 kDa and 14 kDa prosegment cleavage fragments (3;4). These fragments are further processed into 10- and 8-kDa products. Mutational analysis demonstrates that Arg130 and Arg134 are critical for autocatalytic processing of the prosegment, as well as for the subsequent efficient exit of S1P from the ER (5). Once cleaved, the 14 kDa prosegment fragment reportedly remains tightly bound to S1P, unlike the prosegments of other PCs, which are released by acidic pH and high Ca2+ concentrations found in the trans-Golgi network (6). In addition, only the full length 24-kDa prosegment, but none of the smaller fragments, is inhibitory for S1P protease activity towards a synthetic peptide substrate (3). S1P exists as both cell surface transmembrane and extracellularly shed protein forms (1;7). Shedding occurs through cleavage at the sequence KHQKLL953↓SIDL (5).
The muskrat mutation results in a proline to serine substitution at position 341 (P341S); Pro341 is within the catalytic domain.
Please see the record woodrat for more information about Mbtps1.
S1P cleaves diverse substrates. A group of these substrate proteins are activated from a latent state through regulated intramembrane proteolysis (RIP), a process by which transmembrane proteins are cleaved within a membrane-spanning helix to release cytosolic domains that enter the nucleus (or other cellular compartments) to regulate transcription (or other functions) (8). RIP typically requires an initial cleavage in the extracytoplasmic domain of the substrate before the intramembrane proteolytic event. S1P and the Site 2 protease (S2P) function sequentially to carry out RIP for an expanding list of proteins, with S1P performing the initial extracytoplasmic cleavage (typically in the Golgi), and S2P mediating intramembrane cleavage. RIP substrates for S1P and S2P include the SREBPs (7), and CREB/ATF (cAMP response element binding/activating transcription factor) family proteins including ATF6, CREBH, CREB4, OASIS, and Luman, all of which are transcription factors of the basic leucine zipper family (9-13). Another major group of S1P substrates consists of the surface glycoproteins of viruses, which includes those of the Arenaviruses lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) and Lassa fever virus, and the Bunyavirus Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (14-16). S1P has been shown to cleave pro-brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in vitro (1).
Homozygous null mutations of S1P result in embryonic lethality before day 4 due to abnormal epiblast formation and subsequent embryo implantation (17;18). However, an inducible liver-specific knockout of S1P is viable (17). Intraperitoneal injection of poly I:C was used to induce IFN, activating Cre recombination and inactivation of S1P in livers. These animals exhibited reduced levels of nuclear SREBPs, and 74% and 64% reductions of cholesterol and fatty acid biosynthesis, respectively, in hepatocytes. Low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor mRNA and LDL receptor-mediated clearance of plasma LDL declined by 50%. However, plasma cholesterol levels fell, suggesting that LDL production was reduced. The merely partial effects of conditional deletion of S1P on SREBP activation and lipoprotein biosynthesis were unexpected, as S1P function was presumed to be nonredundant. The data suggest that another protease may substitute for S1P in the liver. Alternatively, the 77-90% efficiency of Cre-mediated recombination may not be sufficient to abolish S1P function.
The pigmentation phenotype observed in the muskrat mice mimics that of the woodrat mice (19). The woodrat mice showed normal Mitf expression as well as normal melanocytes in the hair follicle; the functional status of the melanocytes was not tested. The woodrat mice showed aberrant systemic and paracrine processes that promote normal pigmentation; however, a more defined function of S1P in pigmentation has not been determined.
