TMPRSS2, also named as PRSS10, is a type II transmembrane serine protease which is highly expressed by the epithelium of the human prostate gland. TMPRSS2 may contribute to prostate tumour metastasis via the activation of PAR-2. TMPRSS2 is a Serine protease that proteolytically cleaves and activates the viral spike glycoproteins which facilitate virus-cell membrane fusions. TMPRSS2 as a host cell factor that is critical for spread of several clinically relevant viruses, including influenza A viruses and coronaviruses (PMID: 23468491, 30626688). SARS-CoV-2 uses the SARS-CoV receptor ACE2 for entry and the serine protease TMPRSS2 for S protein priming. The initial spike protein priming by TMPRSS2 is essential for entry and viral spread of SARS-CoV-2 through interaction with the ACE2 receptor (PMID: 32142651, 30626688 ). Camostat mesylate, an inhibitor of TMPRSS2, can block SARS-CoV-2 infection of lung cells (PMID: 32142651). The MW of TMPRSS2 is about 65-70 kDa. It can be cleaved in to some chains with MW 54 kDa, 31 kDa and 26 kDa (PMID: 25734995, 20382709, 26018085).
