The protein encoded by this gene is a lysosomal cysteineproteinase involved in bone remodeling and resorption. Thisprotein, which is a member of the peptidase C1 protein family, ispredominantly expressed in osteoclasts. However, the encodedprotein is also expressed in a significant fraction of human breastcancers, where it could contribute to tumor invasiveness. Mutationsin this gene are the cause of pycnodysostosis, an autosomalrecessive disease characterized by osteosclerosis and shortstature. This gene may be subject to RNA editing. [provided byRefSeq].
