|Other Accession||P18242, P80209|
|Calculated MW||H=45;M=45;Rat=45 KDa|
|Other Names||Cathepsin D, Cathepsin D light chain, Cathepsin D heavy chain, CTSD, CPSD|
|Target/Specificity||This CTSD(heavy chain) antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 241-273 amino acids from the Central region of human CTSD(heavy chain).|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CTSD(heavy chain) Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||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.|
|Cellular Location||Lysosome. Melanosome. Secreted, extracellular space. Note=Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV. In aortic samples, detected as an extracellular protein loosely bound to the matrix (PubMed:20551380).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the aorta extracellular space (at protein level) (PubMed:20551380). Expressed in liver (at protein level) (PubMed:1426530).|
