CTSG, a member of thepeptidase S1 protein family, is found in azurophil granules ofneutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes. The encoded protease hasa specificity similar to that of chymotrypsin C, and mayparticipate in the killing and digestion of engulfed pathogens, andin connective tissue remodeling at sites of inflammation.Transcript variants utilizing alternative polyadenylation signalsexist for this gene.
