|Function||Serine protease that proteolytically cleaves and activates the viral spike glycoproteins 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. Facilitates human SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV) infection via two independent mechanisms, proteolytic cleavage of ACE2, which might promote viral uptake, and cleavage of coronavirus spike glycoprotein which activates the glycoprotein for cathepsin L- independent host cell entry. Proteolytically cleaves and activates the spike glycoproteins of human coronavirus 229E (HCoV-229E) and human coronavirus EMC (HCoV-EMC) and the fusion glycoproteins F0 of Sendai virus (SeV), human metapneumovirus (HMPV), human parainfluenza 1, 2, 3, 4a and 4b viruses (HPIV). Essential for spread and pathogenesis of influenza A virus (strains H1N1, H3N2 and H7N9); involved in proteolytic cleavage and activation of hemagglutinin (HA) protein which is essential for viral infectivity.|

Transmembrane protease, serine 2 (TMPRSS2) is a type-II transmembrane serine protease. It encodes a type II trans-membrane domain, a receptor class A domain, a scavenger receptor cysteine-rich domain and a protease domain. The biological function of TMPRSS2 is unknown; however, seine proteases are known to be involved in many physiological and pathological processes (1). TMPRSS2 is expressed highly in primary and metastatic prostate cancers. It is also regulated by androgens and is associated with tumor cell differentiation (1, 2), making it a potential target for cancer therapy and diagnosis. TMPRSS2-ERG fusion, which occurs on account of translocations and interstitial deletions, is implicated in aggressive forms of prostate cancer (3, 4).
