General description

Cathepsin L is a cysteine protease and is secreted by numerous transformed cells in its inactive pre-form. It is ubiquitously expressed and is localized in nucleus. Cathepsin L have substrate interacting region located in L and R domain loops.


Reacts specifically with native and denatured forms of human cathepsin L and procathepsin L. Recognizes an epitope within amino acid residues GYGFEST (265-271 in procathepsin L and 169-175 in the mature cathepsin L molecule). The antibody may be used for the suppression of the malignant growth of myeloma cells. Cross-reactivity is observed with rat cathepsin L (strong), mouse procathepsin L (weak) and mink cathepsin and procathepsin L. Does not cross-react with human cathepsin types B, D, H and S, procathepsins B and D, rat cathepsin B, and mouse procathepsins B and D.


procathepsin L isolated from the human lung cancer cell line EPLC 32M1.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cathepsin L expression is correlated with the metastatic potential of transformed cells. Cathepsin L is capable of degrading protein constituents of the extracellular matrix, this enzyme is thought to play a crucial role in tumor progression, metastasis and other disorders where the destruction of the matrix is the major cause of disease.
