Calpain inhibitor: Calpastatin protease inhibitor
Calpastatin is an endogenous protease inhibitor that acts specifically on calpain (a calcium-dependent cysteine protease). It contains four repetitive calpain inhibition sequences spanning 120 to 140 amino acid residues (domains I, II, and IV) and an N-terminal non-homologous sequence (domain L). The product consists of highly purified recombinant human calpastatin domain I.
