  • Biological description

    Substrate for the lysosomal cysteine protease Cathepsin C. Accumulates within the lysosome. Hydrolysis by cathepsin C degrades Gly-Phe-β-naphthylamide into fragments that do not easily diffuse through the lysosomal membrane, leading to a loss of lysosome membrane integrity. Used to study intralysosomal hydrolysis, lysosomal membrane permeability, and the function of cathepsin C. Inhibits the cathepsin-dependent activation of caspase-8.

  • Handling

    Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
