In the multivesicular body, surfactant precursor protein pro-SFTPC is most likely proteolytically cleaved by napsin-A (NAPSA), cathepsin-H (CTSH) and pepsinogens 3-5 (PGA3-5) (Chuman et al. 1999, Fuchs & Gassen 1989, Athauda et al. 1989, Johansson et al. 1988). The resultant mature peptide SFTPC (chain 24-58) is trafficked to lamellar bodies.
