Cathepsin H (CTSH), which can act both as an aminopeptidase and as an endopeptidase, is a lysosomal cysteine protease of the papain family. CTSH is composed of a dimer of disulfide-linked heavy and light chains, both produced from a single protein precursor. CTSH is associated with various pathological conditions like human fibrous meningioma, colorectal cancer, arthritis, human prostate tumor and lung cancer. CTSH is associated with cancer progression because of their ability to degrade extracellular matrices facilitating invasion, angiogenesis and metastasis as is evident from numerous clinical reports and experimental models. The expression of CTSH is significantly increased in disease states such as in prostate tumors, sera of asthmatic patients, and mucosa of colorectal cancer patients.
Recombinant Mouse Cathepsin H is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Glu22-Val333 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus.
This product is provided as lyophilized powder which is shipped with ice packs.
> 95 % as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
< 1.0 EU per μg as determined by the LAL method.
|Stability and Storage
Generally, lyophilized proteins are stable for up to 12 months when stored at -20 to -80℃. Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-8℃ for 2-7 days. Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20℃ for 3 months.
