PepsinogenⅠand Ⅱ, as precursors of pepsin, are produced by gastric mucosa and released into the gastric lumen and peripheral circulation. The advanced inflammation of gastric mucosa and its progression toward atrophic gastritis (AG) in the corpus is associated with a change in serum biomarkers pepsinogenⅠand Ⅱ.(PMID:23496362). PepsinogenⅡ also known as progastricsin or PGC (pepsinogen C), is an aspartic protease expressed primarily in gastric chief cells and is a novel marker of type 2 cells with advantages over many of the current markers used to identify type 2 cells in the developing lung(PMID:14578117). It is involved in proteolysis and peptidolysis.
