Technical Data
CTSK (Cathepsin K, Cathepsin O, Cathepsin X, Cathepsin O2, CTSO2, CTSO)
Cathepsin family of proteases contains several diverse classes of enzymes. The cysteine protease class comprises cathepsin B, H, K, L, O, and S. The aspartyl protease class contains cathepsin D and E. Cathepsin G belongs to the serine protease class. Cathepsins are involved in various cellular events such as peptide biosynthesis, protein degradation, and apoptosis. Cathepsin K expression is highest in bone, cartilage, and skeletal muscle.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
