Introduction:   Cystatin C, which belongs to the type 2 cystatin gene family, is a potent inhibitor of lysosomal proteinases. It regulates the activity of cathepsin S, a protease with central regulatory functions in retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells.
Amino Acid Sequence   (1-146)
Physical Appearance (form):   Dissolved in 20mM Tris-HCl, pH8.0, 150mM NaCl.
Physical Appearance (form):  White or clear
Concentration:  1 mg/mL
Storage:   -80°C
Preparation Instructions:   Centrifuge the vial before open the cap and reconstitute in water. Adding of 10 mM β-mercaptoethanol or 1 mM DTT into the solution to protect the protein is recommended and using of non-ionic detergents such as n-Dodecyl β-D-maltoside (DoDM) or polyethylene detergents (e.g. C12E10) also help to stabilize the protein. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing after reconstitution. The purity of His-tagged CST3 was determined by SDS- PAGE and Coomassie Brilliant Blue Staining.
