This gene encodes a lysosomal aspartyl protease composed of a dimer of disulfide-linked heavy and light chains both produced from a single protein precursor. This proteinase which is a member of the peptidase C1 family has a specificity similar to but narrower than that of pepsin A. Transcription of this gene is initiated from several sites including one which is a start site for an estrogen-regulated transcript. Mutations in this gene are involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases including breast cancer and possibly Alzheimer disease. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
