Summaries for CTSS Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CTSS Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the peptidase C1 family, is a lysosomal cysteine proteinase that may participate in the degradation of antigenic proteins to peptides for presentation on MHC class II molecules. The encoded protein can function as an elastase over a broad pH range in alveolar macrophages. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CTSS Gene

CTSS (Cathepsin S) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CTSS include mandibular cancer and cercarial dermatitis. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and Immune System. GO annotations related to this gene include peptidase activity and cysteine-type peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CTSW.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CTSS Gene

  • Thiol protease. Key protease responsible for the removal of the invariant chain from MHC class II molecules. The bond-specificity of this proteinase is in part similar to the specificities of cathepsin L and cathepsin N.
