Background: Cathepsin X/Z/P

Cathepsin X (also known as Cathepsin Z and P) is a relatively new cysteine protease of the papain family (1‑5). Compared to other members of the papain family, Cathepsin X has a short proregion and unique insertions. The cysteine residue in the proregion forms a covalent and reversible bond with the active site cysteine residue (6). Acting as a carboxypeptidase, Cathepsin X displays a unique specificity (7‑10). It is ubiquitously expressed in human tissues and conserved in other species such as mouse, nematode and echiuran. The nematode enzyme is apparently involved in molting of third stage larvae (11).
