Cystatin S, Salivary Acidic Protein 1, Cystatin-SA-III, Cystatin-4, Cystatin 4, Cystatin-S.
CST4 is a member of the cystatin superfamily which contains proteins that hold multiple cystatin-like sequences. Several family members are active cysteine protease inhibitors, whereas others have lost or possibly never attained this inhibitory activity. CST4 strongly inhibits papain (non-competitively) and ficin, partially inhibits stem bromelain and bovine cathepsin C, however does not inhibit porcine cathepsin B or clostripain.
CST4 produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 131 amino acids (21-141 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 15.4kDa (Migrates at 13.5-18kDa on SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions).
CST4 is expressed with a 10 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
