Abstract

Protease-activated receptor-2 (PAR-2) is one of a family of G-protein coupled transmembrane receptors activated by proteolytic release of a 'tethered' ligand. We previously reported this receptor has a pivotal role in chronic joint inflammation using a PAR-2 'knockout' mouse [1], but the serine protease responsible for its activation remains uncertain.
