Technical Data
CTSD, CT (CTSD, CPSD, Cathepsin D, Cathepsin D light chain, Cathepsin D heavy chain)
CTSD encodes a lysosomal aspartyl protease composed of a dimer of disulfide-linked heavy and light chains, both produced from a single protein precursor. This proteinase, which is a member of the peptidase C1 family, has a specificity similar to but narrower than that of pepsin A. Transcription of this gene is initiated from several sites, including one which is a start site for an estrogen-regulated transcript.
