Gene: Ctsa (cathepsin A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ctsa
Name: cathepsin A
Description: Predicted to have serine-type carboxypeptidase activity. Involved in negative regulation of chaperone-mediated autophagy and regulation of protein stability. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in galactosialidosis and lysosomal storage disease. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; cranium; genitourinary system; and integumental system. Orthologous to human CTSA (cathepsin A).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AU019505; carboxypeptidase C; carboxypeptidase L; lysosomal protective protein; PPCA; Ppgb; protective protein cathepsin A; protective protein for beta-galactosidase
