|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Calculated MW||37564 Da|
|Positive Control||Western Blot: Jurkat cell lysate. IHC: Kidney tissue|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml), and Immunohistochemistry (5 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Jurkat cell lysate can be used as a positive control. Detects both the proenzyme and the mature form of cathepsin L|

Cathepsin L is a normal lysosomal cysteine endoproteases that is expressed in all cells. The latent 39 kDa pro-Cathepsin L must be processed by cleavage of the 96 amino acid pro-peptide, to generate the active two-chain form made up of 21 and 5 kDa subunits. Mature Cathepsin L is normally localized in the lysosomes where it plays a major role in intracellular protein catabolism. The fact that Cathepsin L is also capable of degrading extracellular matrix proteins s µggests that it may play a role in invasion and metastasis and could be a useful prognostic indicator for cancer.
