Cathepsin B (Cathepsin-B, CPSB, CTSB, Cathepsin B1, Amyloid Precursor Protein Secretase, APP Secretase, APPS, Preprocathepsin B, Procathepsin B)
Description:
The protein encoded by this gene is a lysosomal cysteine proteinase composed of a dimer of disulfide-linked heavy and light chains, both produced from a single protein precursor. It is also known as amyloid precursor protein secretase and is involved in the proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP). Incomplete proteolytic processing of APP has been suggested to be a causative factor in Alzheimer disease, the most common cause of dementia. Overexpression of the encoded protein, which is a member of the peptidase C1 family, has been associated with esophageal adenocarcinoma and other tumors. At least five transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
