Cystatin F, also known as leukocystatin and CMAP (Cystatin-like Metastasis-Associated Protein), is a new member of the Cystatin superfamily (1-3). Cystatin F is selectively expressed by hematopoietic cells and may be a biomarker for both liver metastasis and inflammatory lung disorders (3, 4). As a cysteine protease inhibitor, it shows selectivity towards Cathepsin L and legumain (1, 2, 5). Compared to other secreted Cystatins including C, D, E/M, S, SA and SN, which contain two intrachain disulfide bonds, Cystatin F has two extra Cys residues that may be involved in interchain disulfide bonds. rmCystatin F and rhCystatin F exhibit disulfide bond-linked dimer formation, which was also the case for an E. coli expressed fusion protein containing mature human Cystatin F and glutathione S-transferase (2).
Catalog #C8950-22D
Recombinant mouse Cystatin F encoded by the Cst7 gene (rmCystatin F; amino acid residues 19 to 144; Accession # O89098) was expressed with an N-terminal signal sequence and a C-terminal 6X His tag in a murine myeloma cell line, NS0.
Calculated molecular mass of 15kD and migrates as a 20kD band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Activity Measured by its ability to inhibit human cathepsin L.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
