Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified B IH
Cathepsin L is a cystein protease. It is important for the overall degradation of proteins in lysosomes. Cathepsin L substrates include collagen, elastin and alpha 1 protease inhibitor. The protein is initially expressed as procathepsin L (42kD) and is proteolytically processed into 30kD and 21kD forms. This antibody recognises both precursor and mature forms.
Catalog #C2097-70F
