Description 
Procalcitonin is a precursor of the peptide hormone called calcitonin. Procalcitonin is mainly produced by the C cells of the thyroid and certain endocrine cells of the lung. Under normal expression conditions, procalcitonin is immediately cleaved into three specific fragments, an N terminal residue, calcitonin and katacalcin. Levels of unprocessed procalcitonin have been shown to rise significantly after bacterial infection, trauma or shock. Human Procalcitonin is produced in E.coli. Recombinant human Procalcitonin is a non-glycosylated protein, containing 116 amino acids, with a molecular weight of 12.8 kDa.
