Gene information for CTSO (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID1519
Official gene symbolCTSO
Full namecathepsin O
Gene summaryThe protein encoded by the gene is a cysteine proteinase and a member of the papain superfamily. This proteolytic enzyme is involved in cellular protein degradation and turnover. The recombinant form of this enzyme was shown to degrade synthetic peptides typically used as substrates for cysteine proteinases and its proteolytic activity was abolished by an inhibitor of cyteine proteinase.
