Recombinant Human cystatin C is a prpparation of cystatin C madein E. coli. Cystatin C is a member of the type 2 cystatin superfamily. It is a potent inhibitor of cysteine proteinases, both endogenous (lysosomal cathepsins), and pathogenic. Cystatin C is a 13kDa secreted protein which is found in high concentrations in biological fluids and is thought to be expressed by all human nucleated cells.

Changes in cystatin C have been documented in a number of cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis, amyloid angiopathy and myocardial infarction. Its low molecular weight also means that Cystatin C can be used as a marker of renal failure.

Recombinant Human cystatin C (PHP202) is a single polypeptide chain corresponding to mature secreted protein with an additional Met residue at the N-terminal.
