Accepted name: cathepsin V
Reaction: The recombinant enzyme hydrolyses proteins (serum albumin, collagen) and synthetic substrates (Z-Phe-Arg-NHMec > Z-Leu-Arg-NHMec > Z-Val-Arg-NHMec)
Other name(s): Cathepsin L2; cathepsin U
Comments: Cathepsin V is a human lysosomal cysteine endopeptidase of family C1 (papain family) that is maximally active at pH 5.7 and unstable at neutral pH. Compound E-64, leupeptin and chicken cystatin are inhibitors. Human cathepsin V shows expression restricted to thymus, testis, corneal epithelium and some colon and breast carcinomas. Human gene locus: 9q22.2
