Recombinant Human Cathepsin A/CTSA (C-6His)
Recombinant Human Cathepsin A is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Ala29-Tyr480 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #CI11
BackgroundCathepsin A is active in cellular compartments called lysosomes. These compartments contain enzymes that digest and recycle materials when they are no longer needed. Cathepsin A interacts with the enzymes β-galactosidase and neuraminidase 1, which play a role in the breakdown of complexes of sugar molecules (oligosaccharides) attached to certain proteins (glycoproteins) or fats (glycolipids). Cathepsin A forms a complex with these two enzymes and directs their transport within the cell to the lysosomes. Within lysosomes, cathepsin A activates the enzymes and prevents their breakdown.
