Cathepsin S is a lysosomal cysteine protease, playing an important role in antigen presentation. The inhibition of Cathepsin S is expected to result in immunosuppression, which makes this enzyme an attractive target to potentially treat autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Cathepsin S inhibitor is a novel Cathepsin S inhibitor.

In vitro: Cathepsin S inhibitor was a slow, tight-binding reversible inhibitor of recombinant cathepsin S, exhibiting greater selectivity for cathepsin S compared to cathepsin B [1].

In vivo: No animal in vivo data available currently

Clinical trial: Oral Cathepsin S inhibitor that blocked MHCII antigen presentation could result in a T-cell-selective immunosuppressant agent with improved safety over the current standard of care for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune-based inflammatory diseases [2].

Kinase experiment [1]:

Kinase assays

Assays were performed for Cat S, mCat S, Cat B and Cat L by adding enzyme to a concentration of FRET substrate equal to the Km in a 50 mM sodium phosphate buffer (pH 6.5) containing 2.5 mM DTT, 2.5 mM EDTA plus 0.01% Triton X-100. The Cat V and Cat K assays were performed as above, but in a 0.1 M sodium acetate (pH 5.5) buffer containing 2.5 mM DTT, 2.5 mM EDTA plus 0.01% Triton X-100. Km values for the FRET substrate were 25 μM, 25 μM, 20 μM, 37.5 μM, 35 μM, 35 μM and 25 μM for human Cat S, mouse Cat S, human Cat L, human Cat B, human Cat K, human Cat V and human Cat F respectively.

Animal experiment [1]:

Animal models

Mouse model of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)

Dosage form

1, 3, 10, and 30 mg/kg, oral, BID dosing


The efficacies of Cathepsin S inhibitor was studied in a mouse model of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Cathepsin S inhibitor exhibited a dose-responsive aortic diameter reduction at 1, 3, 10, and 30 mg/kg. At the lowest dose of 1 mg/kg of Cathepsin S inhibitor, the aortic diameter is reduced by 58%, then 83% at 3 mg/kg, and 87% at 10 mg/kg.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Biological Activity

A slow, tight-binding reversible inhibitor of recombinant cathepsin S (Ki = 185 pM). Exhibits about 410-fold greater selectivity for cathepsin S compared to cathepsin B (Ki = 76 nM).
