Background: Trypsin 3/PRSS3
Trypsin 3, encoded by the PRSS3 gene, is also known as mesotrypsin (1).
Constituting less than 10% of the total trypsin content in normal
pancreatic juice, it is one of the three trypsin isoforms produced by
the pancreas (2). Compared to trypsin 1 and 2, one intriguing feature of
Trypsin 3 is its resistance to polypeptide trypsin inhibitors, such as
the Kunitz-type soybean trypsin inhibitor or the Kazal-type pancreatic
secretory trypsin inhibitor. As revealed by the crystal structure, this
resistance is likely due to the presence of an arginine residue in place
of the highly conserved Gly198 (3). Trypsin 3 is synthesized
in the pancreas and secreted into the duodenum lumen, where it is
activated by enterokinase. One proposed physiological function of
Trypsin 3 is degradation of trypsin inhibitors, which facilitates the
digestion of those foods rich in these proteins (4).
