Kallikrein 6 Antibody (Center)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - Kallikrein 6 Antibody (Center) AP6325B
    Western blot analysis of KLK6 (arrow) using rabbit polyclonal KLK6 Antibody (L141) (Cat. #AP6325b). 293 cell lysates (2 ug/lane) either nontransfected (Lane 1) or transiently transfected (Lane 2) with the KLK6 gene.
  • IHC-P - Kallikrein 6 Antibody (Center) AP6325B
    Kallikrein 6(KLK6) Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP6325b)immunohistochemistry analysis in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human brain tissue followed by peroxidase conjugation of the secondary antibody and DAB staining.This data demonstrates the use of Kallikrein 6(KLK6) Antibody (Center) for immunohistochemistry. Clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • FC - Kallikrein 6 Antibody (Center) AP6325B
    Kallikrein 6 (KLK6) Antibody (Center) Antibody (Cat. #AP6325b) flow cytometric analysis of 293 cells (right histogram) compared to a negative control cell (left histogram).FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.

Protein Information
Name KLK6
Synonyms PRSS18, PRSS9
Function Serine protease which exhibits a preference for Arg over Lys in the substrate P1 position and for Ser or Pro in the P2 position. Shows activity against amyloid precursor protein, myelin basic protein, gelatin, casein and extracellular matrix proteins such as fibronectin, laminin, vitronectin and collagen. Degrades alpha-synuclein and prevents its polymerization, indicating that it may be involved in the pathogenesis of Parkinson disease and other synucleinopathies. May be involved in regulation of axon outgrowth following spinal cord injury. Tumor cells treated with a neutralizing KLK6 antibody migrate less than control cells, suggesting a role in invasion and metastasis.
Cellular Location Secreted. Nucleus, nucleolus. Cytoplasm. Mitochondrion. Microsome. Note=In brain, detected in the nucleus of glial cells and in the nucleus and cytoplasm of neurons Detected in the mitochondrial and microsomal fractions of HEK-293 cells and released into the cytoplasm following cell stress
Tissue Location In fluids, highest levels found in milk of lactating women followed by cerebrospinal fluid, nipple aspirate fluid and breast cyst fluid. Also found in serum, seminal plasma and some amniotic fluids and breast tumor cytosolic extracts. Not detected in urine. At the tissue level, highest concentrations found in glandular tissues such as salivary glands followed by lung, colon, fallopian tube, placenta, breast, pituitary and kidney. Not detected in skin, spleen, bone, thyroid, heart, ureter, liver, muscle, endometrium, testis, pancreas, seminal vesicle, ovary, adrenals and prostate. In brain, detected in gray matter neurons (at protein level). Colocalizes with pathological inclusions such as Lewy bodies and glial cytoplasmic inclusions Overexpressed in primary breast tumors but not expressed in metastatic tumors.

Kallikreins are a subgroup of serine proteases having diverse physiological functions. Growing evidence suggests that many kallikreins are implicated in carcinogenesis and some have potential as novel cancer and other disease biomarkers. The KLK6 enzyme is regulated by steroid hormones. In tissue culture, the enzyme has been found to generate amyloidogenic fragments from the amyloid precursor protein, suggesting a potential for involvement in Alzheimer's disease.
