DescriptionCathepsin D is a lysosomal aspartic protease of the pepsin family (1). Human cathepsin D is synthesized as a precursor protein, consisting of a signal peptide (aa 1-18), a propeptide (aa 19-64), and a mature chain (aa 65-412) ). The mature chain can be processed further to the light (aa 65-161) and heavy (aa 169-412) chains. It is expressed in most cells and overexpressed in breast cancer cells. It is a major enzyme in protein degradation in lysosomes, and also involved in the presentation of antigenic peptides. Mice deficient in this enzyme showed a progressive atrophy of the intestinal mucosa, a massive destruction of lymphoid organs, and a profound neuronal ceroid lipofucinosis, indicating that cathepsin D is essential for proteolysis of proteins regulating cell growth and tissue homeostasis. Cathepsin D secreted from human prostate carcinoma cells are responsible for the generation of angiostatin, a potent endogeneous inhibitor of angiogenesis.
