Lysosomal serine protease with tripeptidyl-peptidase I activity. May act as a non-specific lysosomal peptidase which generates tripeptides from the breakdown products produced by lysosomal proteinases. Requires substrates with an unsubstituted N-terminus (By similarity).
Ceroid lipofuscinosis, neuronal, 2 (CLN2) [MIM:204500]: A form of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis. Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses are progressive neurodegenerative, lysosomal storage diseases characterized by intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent liposomal material, and clinically by seizures, dementia, visual loss, and/or cerebral atrophy. The lipopigment pattern seen most often in CLN2 consists of curvilinear profiles. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive, 7 (SCAR7) [MIM:609270]: Spinocerebellar ataxia defines a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCAR7 patients show difficulty walking and writing, dysarthria, limb ataxia, and cerebellar atrophy. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
