Gene Symbol:
CTSW Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
cathepsin W
LYPN, cathepsin W, lymphopain
Genomic Location:
Chr 11: 65403860-65407788
The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the peptidase C1 family, is a cysteine proteinase that may have a specific function in the mechanism or regulation of T-cell cytolytic activity. The encoded protein is found associated with the membrane inside the endoplasmic reticulum of natural killer and cytotoxic T-cells. Expression of this gene is ...
