Alternative names of antibody target:
CATL2 , CATL 2 , CTSL2 , CTSU , CTSV , MGC125957
Cathepsin V, also known as Cathepsin L2 and Cathepsin U, is a cysteine protease of the papain family. It is expressed as a proenzyme in lysosomes, which can be autocatalytically converted to the mature form at pH 4.0. Cathepsin V is specifically expressed in the thymus, testis, and corneal epithelium.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 21 of human Cathepsin
Concentration of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal cathepsin V antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunohistochemistry
Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml) and Immunohistochemistry (5 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Jurkat cell lysate and mouse small intestine tissue lysate can be used as positive controls.
