|Recombinant Human Cystatin E / CST6 protein (Catalog#10438-H08H)|
|0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with 5% trehalose|
|This antibody was obtained from a rabbit immunized with purified, recombinant Human Cystatin E / CST6 (rh Cystatin E / CST6; Catalog#10438-H08H; NP_001314.1; Met 1-Met 149).|
ELISA: 0.1-0.2 μg/mL
This antibody can be used at 0.1-0.2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect Human CST6. The detection limit for Human CST6 is approximately 0.156 ng/well.
Cystatin E/M, also referred to as CST6, is a member of type 2 cysteine proteinase inhibitors of the cystatin superfamily, and inhibits papain and cathepsin B. Cystatin E is a low molecular mass secreted protein existing in both a glycosylated (17 kDa) and an unglycosylated (14 kDa) form, with two characteristic intrachain disulfide bridges. Expression of cystatin M/E is found to be restricted to the epidermis, more specifically in the stratum granulosum, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, and the hair follicles. In addition to its function as a cysteine protease inhibitor, cystatin M/E also serves as a target for cross-linking by transglutaminases. Accordingly, cystatin M/E was suggested to be involved in barrier formation and maintenance. Furthermore, studies have revealed that cystatin M/E is frequently epigenetically inactivated during breast carcinogenesis, and thus be regarded as a candidate of tumour suppressor gene.
