Summaries for CTSD Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CTSD Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the A1 family of peptidases. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate multiple protein products. These products include the cathepsin D light and heavy chains, which heterodimerize to form the mature enzyme. This enzyme exhibits pepsin-like activity and plays a role in protein turnover and in the proteolytic activation of hormones and growth factors. Mutations in this gene play a causal role in neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis-10 and may be involved in the pathogenesis of several other diseases, including breast cancer and possibly Alzheimer's disease. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]

GeneCards Summary for CTSD Gene

CTSD (Cathepsin D) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CTSD include Ceroid Lipofuscinosis, Neuronal, 10 and Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis. Among its related pathways are Peptide hormone metabolism and Innate Immune System. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include aspartic-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000250644.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CTSD Gene

  • Acid protease active in intracellular protein breakdown. Plays a role in APP processing following cleavage and activation by ADAM30 which leads to APP degradation (PubMed:27333034). Involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases such as breast cancer and possibly Alzheimer disease.
