Cystatin-F (CYTF)

Target (abbrv.) CYTF
Target (full name) Cystatin-F
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL007049 (3302-58_1)
Entrez Gene Symbol CST7
UniProt ID O76096
UniProt Comment
  • Inhibits papain and cathepsin L but with affinities lower than other cystatins. May play a role in immune regulation through inhibition of a unique target in the hematopoietic system.

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs6138458) and 60 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
