Summaries for CTSV Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CTSV Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the peptidase C1 family, is a lysosomal cysteine proteinase that may play an important role in corneal physiology. This gene is expressed in colorectal and breast carcinomas but not in normal colon, mammary gland, or peritumoral tissues, suggesting a possible role for this gene in tumor processes. Alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CTSV Gene

CTSV (Cathepsin V) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CTSV include rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Endochondral Ossification. GO annotations related to this gene include protein complex binding and cysteine-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CTSW.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CTSV Gene

  • Cysteine protease. May have an important role in corneal physiology.

Tocris Summary for CTSV Gene

  • Cathepsins are a group of lysosomal proteases that have a key role in cellular protein turnover. The term cathepsin includes serine proteases (cathepsins A and G), aspartic proteases (cathepsin D and E) as well as the cysteine proteases (cathepsins B, C, F, H, K, L, O, S, W and Z). Most cathepsins are endopeptidases, with the exception of cathepsin C and Z. Cathepsins are synthesized as inactive proenzymes, glycosylated post-translationally, and directed towards the lysosomal compartment by cellular mannose-6-phosphate receptors. Their activity is regulated by several mechanisms including regulation of synthesis, zymogen processing, inhibition by endogenous inhibitors (e.g. stefins and cystatins for cysteine cathepsins) and pH. The main function of cathepsins is protein recycling within the lysosome but they are also known to be involved in a range of other physiological, as well as pathological processes, including maturation of the MHC class II complex, bone remodeling, keratinocyte differentiation, tumor progression and metastasis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and atherosclerosis.
