PACE

abbreviation for POLICE AND CRIMINAL EVIDENCE Act.

PACE. A measure of length containing two feet and a half; the geometrical pace is five feet long. The common pace is the length of a step; the geometrical is the length of two steps, or the whole space passed over by the same foot from one step to another.

Use of chemical inhibitor decanoyl-Arg-Val-Lys-Arg-chloromethylketone (dec-RVKR-cmk) for inhibition of furin protein convertase or inhibiting the furin synthesis by small interfering ribonucleic acid (siRNA) results in blocking of second cleavage of the hepcidin precursor.
Thus, our study was mainly focused on the putative furin recognition motif [sub.742][RXRR.sub.745], which is located at the basic domain of Sema3C, since furin-cleavage motif(s) present in basic domains of Sema3A and Sema3F proteins were demonstrated to play an important role in mediating their association with neuropilin receptors (NRP1 and NRP2) and to have a competitive interaction with VEGF (15,16).

GI upset was the most common ADR reported in the earlier studies by Furin et al., [12] Shin et al., [13] Thomas et al., [16] Vishakha and Sanjay et al., [11] and Yew et al.
Pro-BDNF can be proteolytically cleaved intracellularly by enzymes (e.g., PC7, furin, and proconvertases) and secreted as the 14kDa mature form [42, 43] or it can be secreted as pro-BDNF and subsequently cleaved extracellularly by proteases (e.g., metalloproteinases and plasmin) [44].
Once the target domain binds to its receptor, the immunotoxin is internalized by endocytosis, cleaved in domain II by the proprotein convertase furin, leading to the release of the toxin and a subsequent cell killing.
Emilin-1 is known to be a binding precursor of TGF-[beta], called pro-TGF-[beta], and inhibits its maturation by furin convertases [10].
EVs also express genes involved in TGF-[beta] signaling (TGFB1, TGFB3, FURIN, and ENG).
MiR24 inhibits TGF[beta]-smad2/3 signaling mediated differentiation and migration of cardiac fibroblasts by inhibiting furin, a regulatory protein involved in latent TGF[beta] activation process.
The decrease in pH induces cleavage of prM by the host protease furin, which leads to rearrangement of the virion surface into the herringbone-like lattice of E protein dimers of the mature virion, although the remaining portion of prM (pr peptide) still remains associated with the virion.
