||Recombinant Human Cystatin-8/CST8 is produced by our mammalian expression system in human cells. The target protein is expressed with sequence (Lys22-Ala142) of Human CST8 fused with a 6His tag at the C-terminus.
||Cystatin-8 is a secreted protein which belongs to the cystatin family. The cystatin superfamily contains multiple cystatin-like sequences. Cystatin-8 localizes to the cystatin locus and encodes a protein similar to type 2 cystatins. Cystatin-8 performs a specialized role during sperm development and maturation. Cystatin-8 exhibits highly tissue-specific expression in the reproductive tract, suggesting implicit roles in reproduction. In addition, Cystatin-8 performs a specialized role during sperm development and maturation.
