dipeptidyl transferase

di·pep·ti·dyl trans·fer·ase

(dī-pep'ti-dil trans'fĕr-ās),
Cleaving dipeptides from the amino end of polypeptides. See: dipeptidyl peptidase.

CTSC

A gene on chromosome 11q14.2 that encodes cathepsin C, a ubiquitous lysosomal cysteine proteinase that co-ordinates activation of various serine proteinases (e.g., elastase, cathepsin G and granzymes A and B); it also activates neuraminidase and factor XIII. CTSC is highly expressed in the lungs, kidneys and placenta.

Molecular pathology
Defects in CTSC cause Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome, Haim-Munk syndrome and aggressive periodontititis type 1.
