The cystatin superfamily encompasses proteins that containmultiple cystatin-like sequences. Some of the members are activecysteine protease inhibitors, while others have lost or perhapsnever acquired this inhibitory activity. There are three inhibitoryfamilies in the superfamily, including the type 1 cystatins(stefins), type 2 cystatins and the kininogens. The type 2 cystatinproteins are a class of cysteine proteinase inhibitors found in avariety of human fluids and secretions. The cystatin locus onchromosome 20 contains the majority of the type 2 cystatin genesand pseudogenes. This gene is located in the cystatin locus andencodes a protein similar to type 2 cystatins. The protein exhibitshighly tissue-specific expression in the reproductive tract,suggesting implicit roles in reproduction. Alternative splicingidentified in mouse is suggested in human based on EST evidence butthe full-length nature of putative variants has not beendetermined.
