Once in the Golgi, ATF6-alpha undergoes two sequential proteolytic cleavages. S2P catalyzes the second of these, cleaving the ATF6-alpha S1P cleavage product within its transmembrane domain. This cleavage liberates a 50 kD N-terminal fragment with bZIP transcription factor activity into the cytosol.
