    		cathepsin B

			This gene encodes a member of the C1 family
			of peptidases. Alternative splicing of this
			gene results in multiple transcript variants.
			At least one of these variants encodes a
			preproprotein that is proteolytically processed
			to generate multiple protein products. These
			products include the cathepsin B light and
			heavy chains, which can dimerize to form
			the double chain form of the enzyme. This
			enzyme is a lysosomal cysteine protease
			with both endopeptidase and exopeptidase
			activity that may play a role in protein
			turnover. It is also known as amyloid precursor
			protein secretase and is involved in the
			proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor
			protein (APP). Incomplete proteolytic processing
			of APP has been suggested to be a causative
			factor in Alzheimer's disease, the most
			common cause of dementia. Overexpression
			of the encoded protein has been associated
			with esophageal adenocarcinoma and other
			tumors. Multiple pseudogenes of this gene
			have been identified.

			Expression of cathepsin B has been detected
			in thyroid, adipose, lymph node, lung, kidney
			and 29 other tissues.
