Alternative Name: Proprotein convertase 6 (PC6) inhibitor
Description: PC6 is a serine protease involved in processing latent precursor proteins into their biologically active products (e.g. growth factors, cell surface receptors, cytokines). Inhibition of PC6 was found to prevent embryo implantation in the mouse uterus. Additionally, PC6 is necessary for viral fusion and therefore HIV infection.
