Technical Data
C2097-10A
Cathepsin B, ID (CATB, Cathepsin B1, APP Secretase, APPS, Cathepsin B Light Chain, Cathepsin B Heavy Chain, CPSB, CTSB)
Description:
The protein CATB 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 protein, which is a member of the peptidase C1 family, has been associated with esophageal adenocarcinoma and other tumors.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
