Target Background

This is an intracellular thiol proteinase inhibitor. Tightly binding reversible inhibitor of cathepsins L, H and B.
Gene References into Functions
  1. cystatin B expression was significantly and inversely correlated with lung tumor stage and tumor grade PMID: 29037838
  2. The results demonstrate that cystatin B interferes with the STAT-1 signaling and IFN-beta-antiviral responses perpetuating HIV in macrophage reservoirs. PMID: 27137788
  3. apoptosis is accompanied by degradation of the cysteine cathepsin inhibitor stefin B (StfB). CatD did not exhibit a crucial role in this step. However, this degradation was partially prevented through pre-incubation with the antioxidant N-acetyl cysteine PMID: 28543404
  4. Homozygous for a c.218dupT (p.His75Serfs*2) mutation in exon 3 of CSTB causes neurodegeneration, progressive cerebral volume loss and diffuse hypomyelination. PMID: 28378817
  5. CSTB downregulation may promote the development of gastric cancer. PMID: 28281969
  6. It was shown that decreased expression of cystatin B enhances cathepsin activity in Niemann-Pick C cerebellar degeneration patient fibroblasts. PMID: 26908626

  9. Data shows that CYTB and ANXA4 overexpression may be involved in carcinogenesis and histopathological differentiation of ovarian clear cell carcinoma and suggest they may serve as a potential diagnostic biomarkers. PMID: 25633807
  10. A role for disease-causing mutations in cystatin B gene in patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy was not supported. PMID: 25752200
  11. Even though the majority of EPM1 patients have a uniform genetic mutation, the actual size of the longer CSTB expansion mutation allele is likely to have a modulating effect on the age at disease onset, myoclonus severity, and cortical neurophysiology. PMID: 25770194
  12. The study shows detection of stefin B dimers in HEK293 cells and the importance of their residual activity. PMID: 25047918
  13. glutamate dehydrogenase is a euchromatin-associated enzyme, and its H3 clipping activity is regulated by chromatin structure, histone modifications and an in vivo inhibitor. PMID: 25263734
  14. detected a homozygous expansion of dodecamer repeats in the CSTB gene in four patients with clinical diagnosis of ULD. PMID: 23883076
  15. The increased CSTB expression in ovarian tissue represents tumor progression and is dysregulated by the TGF-beta signaling pathway. PMID: 24452274
  16. A reciprocal influence of CSTB and SOD1 at the gene expression level and for a direct interaction of the two proteins, is reported. PMID: 24234043
  17. The present study was performed on two more missense mutants of human stefin B, G50E and Q71P, and they similarly showed numerous aggregates upon overexpression. PMID: 24909779
  18. The co-localization of stefin B wild type and EPM1 mutants with cathepsins showed that cathepsins accumulate around the aggregates formed by the EPM1 mutants. PMID: 23362198
  19. Skull thickening and an increased prevalence of abnormal findings in skeletal radiographs of patients with EPM1 suggest that this condition is connected to defective cystatin B function. PMID: 23010349
  20. This study suggested that CSTB mutations other than the common dodecamer expansion predict particular phenotypes, including marked seizure severity and polymorphous seizure types. PMID: 23205931
  21. Elevated StefA mRNA level is associated with invasive glioblastoma. PMID: 22287159
  22. S-glutathionylation and S-cysteinylation were described as extensive PTM of a salivary protein and the first time that these PTMs were detected in naturally occurring cystatin B. PMID: 22057043
  23. patients compound heterozygous for the dodecamer repeat expansion and the c.202C>T mutations seem to have a severer form of Unverricht-Lundborg disease (EPM1) than patients homozygous for the expansion mutation PMID: 21757863
  24. At pH 7.0 the mutant H75W folded in three kinetic phases to a native-like intermediate, analogous to folding of stefin B at pH 4.8. PMID: 22033403

  31. first demonstration of cysteine protease activity being regulated by CSTB activity in a biological context; effects of decreased CSTB activity in EPM1 pathogenesis may be mediated by cathepsins through increased activity of cathepsins S and L PMID: 12452481
  32. Prefibrillar oligomers/aggregates of stefin B also increase the surface pressure at an air-water interface, i.e. they have amphipathic character and are surface seeking. PMID: 15955063
  33. These data show that cystatin B inhibits bone resorption by down-regulating intracellular cathepsin K activity despite increased osteoclast survival. PMID: 16321512
  34. Study shows that copper binding by stefin B inhibits the amyloid fibril formation and, to a lesser degree, the initial aggregation. PMID: 16939620
