A cDNA encoding cathepsin Z (CTPZ) was cloned from a carp ovarian cDNA library. It is homologous to mammalian CTPZ. The amino acid residues important for protein folding and enzymatic activity of mammalian CTPZ are conserved in carp CTPZ. It is widely expressed in a variety of carp tissues as revealed by Western blot and reverse transcription-polymerase(More)
