  • Official Full Name
  • cystatin A (stefin A)
  • 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 kininogens. This gene encodes a stefin that functions as a cysteine protease inhibitor, forming tight complexes with papain and the cathepsins B, H, and L. The protein is one of the precursor proteins of cornified cell envelope in keratinocytes and plays a role in epidermal development and maintenance. Stefins have been proposed as prognostic and diagnostic tools for cancer.

Protein Function

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