|Official Full Name||cystatin SA|
|Background||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 type 2 cystatin proteins are a class of cysteine proteinase inhibitors found in a variety of human fluids and secretions, where they appear to provide protective functions. The cystatin locus on chromosome 20 contains the majority of the type 2 cystatin genes and pseudogenes. This gene is located in the cystatin locus and encodes a secreted thiol protease inhibitor found at high levels in saliva, tears and seminal plasma.|

CST2 has several biochemical functions, for example, cysteine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity, protein binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by CST2 itself. We selected most functions CST2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with CST2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.

CST2 has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with CST2 here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of CST2.
