Gene: CTSH (cathepsin H) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CTSH
Name: cathepsin H
Description: Exhibits several functions, including HLA-A specific activating MHC class I receptor activity; cysteine-type endopeptidase activator activity involved in apoptotic process; and peptidase activity, acting on L-amino acid peptides. Involved in several processes, including peptide catabolic process; positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and proteolysis. Localizes to several cellular components, including alveolar lamellar body; cytoplasmic ribonucleoprotein granule; and lysosome. Biomarker of Huntington's disease; glioblastoma multiforme; and transitional cell carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ACC-4; ACC-5; ACC4; ACC5; aleurain; cathepsin B3; cathepsin BA; CPSB; DKFZp686B24257; MGC1519; minichain; N-benzoylarginine-beta-naphthylamide hydrolase; pro-cathepsin H
