|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||120714 Da|
|Antigen Region||188-217 aa|
|Other Names||Serine protease inhibitor Kazal-type 5, Lympho-epithelial Kazal-type-related inhibitor, LEKTI, Hemofiltrate peptide HF6478, Hemofiltrate peptide HF7665, SPINK5|
|Target/Specificity||This SPINK5 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 188-217 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human SPINK5.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||SPINK5 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Serine protease inhibitor, probably important for the anti-inflammatory and/or antimicrobial protection of mucous epithelia. Contribute to the integrity and protective barrier function of the skin by regulating the activity of defense- activating and desquamation-involved proteases. Inhibits KLK5, it's major target, in a pH-dependent manner. Inhibits KLK7, KLK14 CASP14, and trypsin.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in the thymus and stratum corneum. Also found in the oral mucosa, parathyroid gland, Bartholin's glands, tonsils, and vaginal epithelium. Very low levels are detected in lung, kidney, and prostate|

SPINK5 is a multidomain serine protease inhibitor that contains 15 potential inhibitory domains. The inhibitor may play a role in skin and hair morphogenesis and anti-inflammatory and/or antimicrobial protection of mucous epithelia. Mutations may result in Netherton syndrome, a disorder characterized by ichthyosis, defective cornification, and atopy.
