Synergistic antitumor effects of combined cathepsin B and cathepsin Z deficiencies on breast cancer progression and metastasis in mice.


The lysosomal cysteine proteases cathepsin B (Ctsb) and cathepsin Z (Ctsz, also called cathepsin X/P) have been implicated in cancer pathogenesis. Compensation of Ctsb by Ctsz in Ctsb (-/-) mice has been suggested. To further define the functional interplay of these proteases in the context of cancer, we generated Ctsz null mice, crossed them with Ctsb… (More)
