Cystatin-SN (CYTN)

Target (abbrv.) CYTN
Target (full name) Cystatin-SN
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL010456 (5459-33_3)
Entrez Gene Symbol CST1
UniProt ID P01037
UniProt Comment
  • Human saliva appears to contain several cysteine proteinase inhibitors that are immunologically related to cystatin S but that differ in their specificity due to amino acid sequence differences. Cystatin SN, with a pI of 7.5, is a much better inhibitor of papain and dipeptidyl peptidase I than is cystatin S, although both inhibit ficin equally well.

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs2070856).
