Introduction

Cathepsin S (CTSS) belongs to the peptidase C1 family. CTSS is a lysosomal cysteine proteinase that participates in the degradation of antigenic proteins to peptides for presentation on MHC class II molecules. CTSS functions as an elastase over a broad pH range in alveolar macrophages.

Description

CTSS Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 336 amino acids (17-331) and having a molecular mass of 38.1kDa. CTSS is fused to a 21 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques. 

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

The CTSS solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.4M urea and 10% glycerol.
