EC                Enzyme                                 

cathepsin K;
cathepsin O and cathepsin X (both misleading, having been used for other enzymes);
cathepsin O2
Acting on peptide bonds (peptidases);
Cysteine endopeptidases
BRITE hierarchy
Broad proteolytic activity. With small-molecule substrates and inhibitors, the major determinant of specificity is P2, which is preferably Leu, Met > Phe, and not Arg
Prominently expressed in mammalian osteoclasts, and believed to play a role in bone resorption. In peptidase family C1 (papain family)
