Sterile filtered colorless solution.
Cathepsin-A (CTSA) is a protective protein which is crucial for both the activity of beta-galactosidase and neuraminidase, CTSA associates with these enzymes and exerts a protective function required for their stability and activity. The CTSA protein is also a carboxypeptidase and can deamidate tachykinins. CTSA is a component of the lysosomal multienzyme complex along with beta-galactosidase and sialidase Neu1. CTSA is a multicatalytic enzyme with deamidase and esterase in addition to carboxypeptidase activities.
CTSA produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 459 amino acids (24-474 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 52.4kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 50-70kDa).CTSA is expressed with an 8 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
