Technical Data
C2097-69U
CTSK (Cathepsin K, Cathepsin O, Cathepsin X, Cathepsin O2, CTSO2, CTSO)
Description:
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.

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