Western Blot staining of HEK293 lysate overexpressing Human CST8 (c-term Myc tagged and loaded in Lane A and C) stained with PA5-19253 at a concentration of 0.3 ug/ml (lane A). Lane C was stained with anti-MYC Tag at a dilution of (1/1000). Lane B was loaded with mock-transfected HEK294 cells and stained using PA5-19252 at a concentration of 1 mg/ml. Primary antibody incubation was performed for 1 hour and detection was performed by chemiluminescence.

This antibody is predicted to react with human based on sequence homology.
The cystatin superfamily encompasses proteins that contain multiple cystatin-like sequences. Some of the members are active cysteine protease inhibitors, while others have lost or perhaps never acquired this inhibitory activity. There are three inhibitory families in the superfamily, including the type 1 cystatins , type 2 cystatins and the kininogens. The type 2 cystatin proteins are a class of cysteine proteinase inhibitors found in a variety of human fluids and secretions. The cystatin locus on chromosome 20 contains the majority of the type 2 cystatin genes and pseudogenes. This gene is located in the cystatin locus and encodes a protein similar to type 2 cystatins. The protein exhibits highly tissue-specific expression in the reproductive tract, suggesting implicit roles in reproduction. Alternative splicing identified in mouse is suggested in human based on EST evidence but the full-length nature of putative variants has not been determined.
