Cathepsin S – Pipeline Review, H1 2020

Cathepsin S – Pipeline Review, H1 2020


According to the recently published report ‘Cathepsin S – Pipeline Review, H1 2020’; Cathepsin S (CTSS or EC pipeline Target constitutes close to 7 molecules. Out of which approximately 6 molecules are developed by companies and remaining by the universities/institutes.

Cathepsin S (CTSS or EC – Cathepsin S is a lysosomal enzyme that belongs to the papain family of cysteine proteases. Cathepsin S has a role in itch and pain, or nociception. The nociceptive activity results from cathepsin S functioning as a signaling molecule via activation of protease-activated receptors 2 and 4 members of the G-protein coupled receptor family. Cathepsin S has a physiological role outside the lysosome. Immune cells, including macrophages and microglia, secrete cathepsin S in response to inflammatory mediators including lipopolysaccharides, proinflammatory cytokines and neutrophils.
