Cystatin C antibody
The cystatin superfamily encompasses proteins that contain multiple cystatin-like sequences. Some of the members are active cysteine protease inhibitors, while others have lost or perhaps never acquired this inhibitory activity. There are three inhibitory families in the superfamily, including the type 1 cystatins (stefins), type 2 cystatins and the kininogens. The cystatin locus on chromosome 20 contains the majority of the type 2 cystatin genes and pseudogenes. The CST3 gene, which encodes Cystatin C, is located in the cystatin locus and encodes the most abundant extracellular inhibitor of cysteine proteases, which is found in high concentrations in biological fluids and is expressed in virtually all organs of the body. A mutation in CST3 has been associated with amyloid angiopathy. Expression of this protein in vascular wall smooth muscle cells is severely reduced in both atherosclerotic and aneurysmal aortic lesions, establishing its role in vascular disease (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).
Mouse anti Human cystatin C antibody detects a band of 13 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
