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 kininogens. This gene encodes astefin that functions as a cysteine protease inhibitor, formingtight complexes with papain and the cathepsins B, H, and L. Theprotein is one of the precursor proteins of cornified cell envelopein keratinocytes and plays a role in epidermal development andmaintenance. Stefins have been proposed as prognostic anddiagnostic tools for cancer.
