Amyloid angiopathy and cerebral hemorrhage
bA218C14.4 (cystatin C)
Neuroendocrine basic polypeptide
Post gamma globulin
FunctionAs an inhibitor of cysteine proteinases, this protein is thought to serve an important physiological role as a local regulator of this enzyme activity.
Tissue specificityExpressed in submandibular and sublingual saliva but not in parotid saliva (at protein level). Expressed in various body fluids, such as the cerebrospinal fluid and plasma. Expressed in highest levels in the epididymis, vas deferens, brain, thymus, and ovary and the lowest in the submandibular gland.
Involvement in diseaseAmyloidosis 6 Macular degeneration, age-related, 11
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the cystatin family.
Post-translational modificationsThe Thr-25 variant is O-glycosylated with a core 1 or possibly core 8 glycan. The signal peptide of the O-glycosylated Thr-25 variant is cleaved between Ala-20 and Val-21.
