Mouse Anti Human Monoclonal.


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.



Physical Appearance

Sterile filtered colorless solution.


Anti-human CTSS mAb, clone PAT1F9A, is derived from hybridization of mouse F0 myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with a recombinant human CTSS protein 17-331 amino acids  purified from E. coli.

Ig Subclass

Mouse IgG2b heavy chain and Kappa light chain. 

Purification Method

CTSS antibody was purified from mouse ascitic fluids by protein-A affinity chromatography.


1mg/ml containing PBS, pH-7.4, 10% Glycerol and 0.02% Sodium Azide.

Storage Procedures

For periods up to 1 month store at 4°C, for longer periods of time, store at -20°C. 
Prevent freeze thaw cycles.

Stability / Shelf Life

12 months at -20°C. 1 month at 4°C.


The antibody has been tested by ELISA, Western blot analysis to assure specificity and reactivity. Since application varies, however, each investigation should be titrated by the reagent to obtain optimal results. Recommended starting dilution is 1:500.
