CTSE, A430072003Rik, C920004C08Rik, CatE, CE.
CTSE or cathepsin E is an intracellular aspartic protease from the pepsin protein family. CTSE has a crucial part in protein degradation, creating bioactive proteins & processing antigens. The enzyme is responsible for cleaving at B site, Swedish mutant of amyloid precursor protein and the enzyme shows reactivity with the wild-type APP.
CTSE Mouse produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 385 amino acids ( 21-397 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 41.8 kDa.
CTSE is expressed with a 8 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Insect cells.
CTSE protein solution ( 0.5mg/ml ) contains PBS (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
