|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||44552 Da|
|Antigen Region||377-408 aa|
|Other Names||Cathepsin D, Cathepsin D light chain, Cathepsin D heavy chain, CTSD, CPSD|
|Target/Specificity||This CTSD antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 377-408 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human CTSD.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CTSD Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Acid protease active in intracellular protein breakdown. Plays a role in APP processing following cleavage and activation by ADAM30 which leads to APP degradation (PubMed:27333034). Involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases such as breast cancer and possibly Alzheimer disease.|
|Cellular Location||Lysosome. Melanosome. Secreted, extracellular space. Note=Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV. In aortic samples, detected as an extracellular protein loosely bound to the matrix (PubMed:20551380).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the aorta extrcellular space (at protein level) (PubMed:20551380). Expressed in liver (at protein level) (PubMed:1426530).|

CTSD encodes a lysosomal aspartyl protease composed of a dimer of disulfide-linked heavy and light chains, both produced from a single protein precursor. This proteinase, which is a member of the peptidase C1 family, has a specificity similar to but narrower than that of pepsin A. Transcription of this gene is initiated from several sites, including one which is a start site for an estrogen-regulated transcript.
