  • Function
    Closely involved in osteoclastic bone resorption and may participate partially in the disorder of bone remodeling. Displays potent endoprotease activity against fibrinogen at acid pH. May play an important role in extracellular matrix degradation.
  • Tissue specificity
    Predominantly expressed in osteclasts (bones).
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CTSK are the cause of pycnodysostosis (PKND) [MIM:265800]. PKND is an autosomal recessive osteochondrodysplasia characterized by osteosclerosis and short stature.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase C1 family.
  • Cellular localization
    Lysosome.
  • Information by UniProt
