Secondary Information

Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells lysosomes of primary myoblasts, primary glial cells, extracelluar fluids and secretory granules of rat endocrine B cells, saliva, urine, serum
Protein Function Stefin family; cystein cathepsin inhibitor; protects neurons against oxidative stress; involved in the defence of tissues against invasion by pathogens; upregulated in septic injury;
Biochemical Properties Monomeric protein with missing intramolecular disulfide bridges or glycosylation; resistant to proteolytic cleavge but the N-terminal is accessible to protease attack; soluble protein; nuclear concentration is higher than cytoplasmic concentration;
Significance in milk Downregulated in mastitis; role in the protection from bacterial infection
Additional Comments Fibrillation is caused by acididc solvants, high temperature, presence of TFE or high ionic strengths
